Learning from Experience and Sharing Knowledge: A Capitalization Manual
MetadataShow full item record
This manual represents the synthesis of several components. Firstly, it comes from a series of capitalization initiatives that have occurred over the last few years in both ACF headquarters and from those working in the field. The necessity for the capitalization of experiences was detected by our ACF staff members in the field. From their observations, it was felt that there was a need to improve our learning processes as organization and to reinforce the exchange of experiences and methodologies among different contexts. Secondly, it reflects the need as an organization to significantly improve our professional work and our impact on beneficiaries through a critical reflection and analysis of our experiences. This knowledge, of course, will not only be useful for ACF, but also for donors, beneficiaries, local partners, and a multitude of other stakeholders. And lastly, this document is closely related with the ACF’s Research Policy1. As stated in the Research Policy, ACF is dedicated to ensuring that all of our programs are high quality interventions geared towards improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations. The principal objective of this policy is to positively impact the most vulnerable populations. Additionally, the specific objective of this policy is to better ACF’s technical and operational capabilities on the ground. One of the ways in which ACF has proposed to do this is through its technical development. This development aims to continuously enhance the quality and impact of missions through capitalization, studies and research, dissemination and the exploitation of knowledge. In short, technical development looks to apply the most appropriate technical solutions to projects based on the development of internal and external methodologies. Each mission plays an important role in this process as they are “at the center of the six stage technical development cycle” (Research Policy ACF-IN).
