CBS was created at the successful conclusion of the Centre for Governance & Public Management (CGPM) and the Assessment and Strengthening Program-LUMS. CBS has also expanded to contain all the centres of SDSB including the Social Enterprise Development Centre (SEDC).


Assessment and Strengthening Program (ASP)

ASP-LUMS was a 5-year long training program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It was designed to bring the management of Pakistani civil society and government organizations to a higher level of management excellence, accountability, and transparency. Over 3,000 managers and executives from government and civil society organizations from across Pakistan were trained in areas including monitoring and evaluation, fiscal decentralization, and leadership and cultural change, and many more.

In the past, CSB has entered into formal agreements with Partnering Institutions (PI) for the purpose of conducting trainings. The Center builds the capacity of PIs by training faculty and staff. The faculty, after receiving training at CSB, is able to train in their own campuses. Read More
