Human and Institutional Capacity Development Handbook
A USAID model for sustainable performance improvement
The HICD Handbook was developed by the Bureau for Economic Growth, Agriculture and Trade (EGAT) to help USAID integrate Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD) into its development assistance programs. It provides information on the evolution of HICD, implementation guidance, and tools for implementing HICD initiatives. HICD can be successfully applied to any type of organization including government organizations, non-profit organizations and professional associations. HICD will enable these organizations to responsibly meet the needs of their countries and their citizens.
