ASGP worked hand in hand with 982 CSOs to strengthen their institutional capacity and promote long-term sustainability. The ASGP approach was centered on targeted capacity development support for all of the CSOs involved, from nascent organizations, to larger more established CSOs. Creative designed a strategic self-assessment tool, the Institutional and Gender Audit (I&GA), to assess the institutional capacity of SDG and ACG recipient CSOs before and after grant implementation. The I&GA built CSO capacity and gender equality in External Relations and Advocacy, Fundraising, Project Management, Strategic Planning, Human Resources, Financial Management and Internal Governance.
