ABSTRACT
 
Capacity building interventions in major public service domains are inevitable to expedite the prospects for a welfare and egalitarian society. In the field of education, some primary organizational capacity building gaps relate to managerial capacity coupled with lack of experience especially in matters related to policy formulation, planning and management of educational programmes. However, capacity challenges are acute in the area of climate change, health, economic growth, poverty, gender, etc. Owing to limited technical and intellectual capacity of the institutions related to women empowerment, planned development programmes and manifestos have failed to address gender issues. 
The study underlines the fact that coordinated and well-planned efforts are essential to improvise the policy agendas of capacity building initiatives that are rational to some extent and viable for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The study identifies and examines the challenges of capacity building which are coming in the way of materializing SDGs in Pakistan.
