Toelichting (Engels) Water lies at the heart of human development but the global challenges for meeting demands, coupled with increasing urbanisation, land degradation and human population growth, make the challenges of water use in the developing world particularly acute. Capacity development is crucial for creating and strengthening the knowledge base to address water-related development challenges via sound water governance. The UNESCO-IHE Institute of Water Education has a strong mandate and track record in capacity development within the water sector. As part of the review of its strategic direction, UNESCO-IHE undertook a review of its capacity development (CD) programme, using a variety of reflection modalities and involving a broad range of staff and external stakeholders. The purpose of this paper is to capture the created, collective understanding and to outline the identified responses. In the face of increasingly complex challenges and demands at national and global levels, we find that it is imperative to strengthen the capacity of water sector organisations and not just the individuals inside them, and to pay attention to the needs for the development of complementary skills across the various sectors that play a key role at scales of water management from local to transboundary. Thus, the challenge for UNESCO-IHE and other capacity builders is how to shape their CD activities so as to maximize impact in terms of helping people and organisations to solve their water-related challenges by creating, transferring and applying knowledge for change and innovation. This can only be achieved if capacity builders practice what they preach for strengthening organisational capacity, namely carefully managing their own knowledge base (on CD), fostering knowledge sharing (on CD) among their staff and with their partners in the Global South, and considering each (CD) project a learning opportunity.
