Abstract This Praxis Note summarises the lessons learned from five years of PSO support to capacity development of CSOs in crises, and looks at the trends of capacity development practice in the Dutch INGO members of PSO. What did the PSO association learn and how did it deal with the many challenges? The note summarises the authors’ understanding of the insights from the many evaluations and reports that resulted from these activities. Lessons learned become only meaningful when they lead to changes in behaviour and practice. Therefore the note starts with the lessons learned and then looks in more detail at how Dutch NGOs are applying these lessons in their current practices. This Praxis note is based on an initial paper presented at the World Conference on Humanitarian Studies in Groningen in 2009, and updated with new insights and valuable inputs received from ICCO/Kerk in Actie and INTRAC.
