Rural Support Programmes Network (RSPN), Pakistan

Assessment and Strengthening Programme (ASP)

The Assessment and Strengthening Program – Rural Support Programmes Network (ASP-RSPN) is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The primary objective of the ASP is to assess the capacity needs of public sector institutions and local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). ASP builds the institutional capacity of local organizations thereby providing USAID Pakistan a mechanism to work with a myriad of stakeholders, local implementing partners and Government of Pakistan (GoP) institutions in an efficient and responsible manner. The approach adopted by ASP is to identify, address and validate the institutional capacity weaknesses of local organizations.
