Capacity is the ability of individuals, organizations, and/or systems to perform appropriate functions effectively, efficiently, and sustainably. (UNDP)

Capacity building is an on-going evidence driven process of strengthening the abilities of individuals, organizations, and/or systems to perform core functions sustainably, and to continue to improve and develop over time. (PEPFAR, FY2012)
