The purpose of the study is to gain understanding of the aspects that might facilitate or hinder the success of capacity development projects for disaster risk reduction. It analyses nine international projects undertaken by a Swedish civil governmental agency, during the period 2007–2013. The documentation analysis was complemented with seven interviews with the organisation's project managers. The analysis further sought to understand whether any developments can be observed during the period studied, and if additional challenges or opportunities were identified by the professionals running these projects.
