About This Publication: 

Focusing on capacity development programming and transition to national authorities in Afghanistan and beyond, this Lessons Learned Brief captures lessons generated from IDLO’s experience implementing JTTP. As part of the methodology, programmatic lessons have been enhanced and corroborated by the experience of main stakeholders and international literature. Lessons and recommendations are presented in the form of key building blocks that practitioners can use to design realistic theories of change for high-quality programs tailored to specific contexts. The aim is to enhance practitioner capacity to explore why and how change occurs, including the conditions that need to be in place for intended results to be achieved, while recognizing that specific program design will necessarily require in-depth contextual analysis and responses to local needs and concerns.
