WASH CAPACITY ASSESSMENT & CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT MODULE
Project Title: WASH CAPACITY ASSESSMENT & CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT MODULE
Develop a Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Capacity Assessment and Capacity Development Module to facilitate the county wash team's understanding of the difference between the county’s baseline capacity and the capacity needed to carry out its goals by community partners in the county and to adequately provide appropriate measures.
The Montserrado County WASH team with support from the Liberia WASH Consortium contracted for a Capacity Assessment (CA) of the county, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), and for the development of training modules and capacity development and preparedness plans
Performed capacity development assessments and submitted report findings.
Developed capacity development plans with preparedness plans for county wash team, CSOS, and local partners.
Developed capacity development modules; and conducted a 4-day workshop with county wash teams, local partners, and CSOs.
Compiled a Final Report on capacity assessment, findings, and outcomes of capacity development modules; and best practice capacity development model proposal.
Amaka Consulting's approach:
Collected data about past and present outputs, assessed and trended their relevance, evaluated quality and quantity of service from partners and the Montserrado County WASH teams.
Highlighted the current performance; and supported the team, based on reviews and data analysis, to gauge how capacity could grow.
Identified perceived and actual constraints that hinder the drivers of capacity growth.
Amaka Consulting's tools employed:
Quantitative and qualitative methods to determine scores for capacity indicators and capture more dynamic issues and perceptions of partners
Self-assessment techniques that encouraged better ownership of results.
Utilized objective criteria for external validation to provide comparable results for evaluation purposes
Review the internal elements such as the leadership, strategy, structures, rewards and incentives, internal relationships and other key inputs as instruments for triangulation to develop a comprehensive picture of capacity from different perspectives and assess the level of consensus over issues.
