Handbook on capitalisation of experiences 2012

This handbook by the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP) focuses on climate change adaptation experiences and aims to build the capacity of adaptation programmes and project teams. It argues that good communication strategies and knowledge management are critical to achieving high impacts from capitalisation initiatives. The handbook recommends capitalisation of experiences as an exercise that extracts lessons learned to inspire future actions and promote mutual learning opportunities among different actors. The handbook is divided into two parts: the first part outlines key concepts; the second describes the steps and tools required for the capitalisation of climate change adaptation experiences. The aim is not to provide a ready-made recipe, but methodological orientations that can be adapted to the specific contexts of each country and programme.
