institution building


institution-building

This is a priority within Dutch development cooperation. The aim is to achieve a sustainable enhancement of an institution's capacity and thus to improve its overall functioning. The term requires some explanation, however. Someone unfamiliar with development jargon might think that buildings are to be constructed. The hyphen makes the term a bit clearer.
