9  Capacity Development for Effective and Efficient Disabled People’s Organisations in Pacific Island Countries ◦ Undertaken

10  Synthesise existing research on capacity development pathways for DPOs  Provide opportunities for reflection and learning in DPOs about capacity  Identify issues affecting capacity of DPOs  Develop principles and themes for DPO’s own capacity development  Identify preferred approaches for partners who wish to contribute to DPO capacity

11 1. What capacity do DPOs consider they have already? 2. What factors influence the current capacity of DPOs? 3. What has worked well in terms of capacity development processes undertaken by DPOs themselves to date?

12 4. What are DPO priorities for future organizational capacity development? 5. What are effective and preferred approaches and tools for development partners to contribute to DPO capacity? Research Questions (2)

13  A literature survey ◦ which identified that no other strengths-based research had been undertaken of DPOs internationally and little information was publicly available about the capacity of DPOs in the Pacific or elsewhere  Visits to 12 countries, which included: ◦ training of researchers ◦ Interviews ◦ group meetings ◦ planning and report-back workshops

14  Cook Islands  Tonga  Samoa  Fiji  Kiribati  Tuvalu  Nauru  Vanuatu  Solomon Islands  PNG  FSM  Palau

15  Country reports and country summaries, including case studies  Pacific wide report

16  Preparations before visits – identification of DPO nominated researcher  At least one researcher from PDF and APIDS spent one week in-country with DPO  First day with research team  Series of workshops/interviews/meetings with DPO members  Interviews with other stakeholders  Report back and planning workshop with DPO members  Drafting and revision of country report

17  DPOs’ priorities for their own capacity pathways  What DPOs would like to be able to meet their priorities  How DPOs would like their partners to contribute  Overall conclusions
