Registration for the library is open to anyone, joining an organization will allow you to contribute.

This library is a repository of development resources designed to improve sharing of data and information between the USAID/Lebanon Mission, local implementing partners and development organizations within Lebanon.

The BALADI CAP Resource Library has been created for the purpose of making essential information useful for development professionals, including USAID staff, easily discoverable and accessible online.

Resources in the library are made available for viewing and download to any visitors of the library. Organizations can limit their resources to be shared within their organization if necessary.

To upload resources you must register on the KaMP. Once you are logged in click on “Add Resource” at the top right corner of the home page and you can add a single resource or a collection of a related group of resources.

  • USAID/Lebanon templates for Implementing Partners' use in M&E and other areas.
  • Training materials and presentations developed by USAID/Lebanon Monitoring and Evaluation Support Project and other organizations.
  • Assessments and evaluations conducted in Lebanon and the region
  • Geospatial data and maps
  • USAID/Lebanon commissioned reports and IPs commissioned.
  • Other relevant materials in a variety of formats and topics.

Note: Activity-specific materials such as success stories, work plans, quarterly reports, and other project/activity documents should not be uploaded as these are not useful learning resources for the wider development community.

While registration for the library is open to anyone, becoming part of an organization requires having access to a verified email address within that organization. Organization administrators can also add users to an organization without requiring them to have an organization email address.

If you are the first user within your organization to register for the library, you will be asked to apply to add a partner organization before you can upload any resources. All organization applications are moderated by library administrators and once approved all users in those organizations can add resources to the library.

The library will be populated with resources identified and uploaded by staff from USAID/Lebanon, BALADI CAP, Implementing Partners and other library users.

While the ability to upload documents and resources to the library will be restricted to approve users in order to protect the contents from malicious intent, information on the library will be will be available to all interested development partners in Lebanon.

Organization membership has three different levels of access – Administrator, Editor and User. The person applying for the organization will be given the Administrator level and can manage access levels for all users in that organization. Organization administrators can also add users to an organization without requiring them to have an organization email address.

  • Members can add Resources through that Organization and edit any Resources that they have added. This is the default access level.
  • Editors can add Resources through an Organization and also edit all Resources belonging to that Organization.
  • Managers can add/edit and delete any Resources belonging to their Organization. Managers also have the ability to add/edit/drop users from their Organization. Managers can also grant Users organizational roles within their Organization including assigning management to another User.

Files (Resources) uploaded to the library are marked with relevant metadata to assist users in finding what they are looking for. Metadata consists of a title, description, tags and document types. To find resources click on the magnifier icon at the top right corner of the screen.

The Resource/Collection name, description, Corporate Authorship and notes should be in English for Arabic documents, a collection should be created for multi-language resources.

For documents that are already on the DEC; links to the DEC are all that are required. The system will generate a preview based on that link and will also direct you to the address on the DEC instead of showing them a download link.
