Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation

The CFTC approach emphasises country ownership by delivering technical assistance on a demand-driven basis. This approach seeks to deliver relevant change through ‘best fit’ rather than ‘best practice’ responses to the challenges of development. Fundamentally, focus is on strengthening national capabilities through institutional development and capacity-building with a view to long-term sustainability.

Technical assistance is delivered predominantly on a south-south basis, and also aims to mainstream gender considerations throughout all project work.
