The program to support the development of national associations for impact assessment in Central Africa (French acronym: PAANEEAC) has been implemented from 2008 until 2013 in Burundi, Cameroon, Congo Brazzaville, Central African Republic and Rwanda. It was a mix of technical assistance and small grants for NGOs. Aim was to promote Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as a tool for sustainable development. The paper identifies conditions for success of external interventions for capacity development in the literature. It searches for the presence of these factors in PAANEEAC by means of document analysis and interviews. One author is reflexive practitioner. It is concluded that PAANEEAC has achieved many of its goals, primarily the development of lasting platforms to enable strategic conversation between government and NGOs. The success factors in the literature are largely confirmed.
