Training is a critically important component of capacity development. But training also often must be coupled with other forms of capacity development. For example, informal practitioners in many settings have recognized the value of being able to provide victims and offenders with information about the remedies available in the formal legal system because it will more likely promote victim safety and offender accountability. However, legal literacy and general literacy both may be at low levels among informal practitioners. Providing basic literacy training to informal practitioners, along with providing them simple versions of formal laws related to violence against women can be an important capacity development process that has a positive impact on women’s safety, especially when compliance with laws on violence against women is enforced by all those in positions of power, whether in the formal or informal system
