UNDP Community Capacity Enhancement Strategy Note: The Answer Lies Within

Moustapha Gueye, Daouda Diouf, Thebisa Chaava and David Tiomkin

This publication outlines the rationale and strategy behind the CCE programme and provides a guide for its implementation. The Community Capacity Enhancement programme, or CCE, is an integral part of UNDP’s Leadership for Results programme and is based on a methodology known as Community Conversations. The CCE programme is aimed at dealing with the underlying causes of HIV/AIDS, be they power relations, gender issues, stigma or discrimination. Most community methodologies rightly focus on awareness-raising and discussion; CCE focuses heavily on interactive dialogue on the epidemic’s deeper causes and, through a facilitated process, community decision-making and action.
