The Programme aims to strengthen mechanisms, networks and capacity for deepening and broadening of Non State Actors (including cultural actors) involvement in development processes.
As a part of the NSA–NET Technical Assistance, an organizational capacity assessment (OCA) was conducted with all the 12 NSAs and their 22 partners. The aim of the OCA was to identify capacity gaps and strengths among the NSAs and their partners, aimed at leveraging on their strengths and seeking innovative ways to address the capacity gaps during the implementation of the NSA – NET Programme.
