The first step of any capacity building activity is to identify the most suitable learning approach, based on a training needs analysis of the country context, the main analytical methods used, current stakeholders and gaps in the skills of key staff and partners. The learning options include a workshop (face-to-face training event) , an e-learning course or on-the-job learning (learning by doing "on the job").
