Humanitarian Capacity Strengthening Programme
CAFOD’s Humanitarian Capacity Strengthening (HCS) programme focuses on partner-led capacity strengthening, adopting approaches that encourage local ownership.
It takes a holistic organisational approach to humanitarian capacity strengthening, working under the premise that stronger organisations will be better able to respond to emergencies. Since 2012 a series of four HCS projects have been implemented. In total these have reached 37 partner organisations (predominantly from the Caritas family) from across 11 countries.
