Capacity building

The Addis Agenda and the 2030 Agenda recognize capacity development as an integral part of the global partnership for sustainable development. The Addis Agenda contains commitments to capacity building in each of its seven action areas, as well as on data and statistics. In addition, there is an overarching commitment contained in paragraph 115 of this chapter on STI and capacity building.

The data on international funds for financial and technical assistance to LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS show that after a substantial increase between 2005 and 2010, disbursements declined again between 2010 and 2014.
