It is important to assess the impact of community capacity building activity.
This can mean looking at things like: the difference that it has made; what has worked best and what has not worked well; how this compares with other approaches; value for money.
The key principles in measuring your activity are self-assessment, community involvement and continuous assessment.
Assessment of community capacity building activity should be led by communities.
The most important aspect of assessing the impact of capacity building activity is actually using your findings – and building these into your future activity.
