PUBLICATION: Donor Approaches to Governance Assessments: Guiding Principles for Enhanced Impact, Usage and Harmonization
A new OECD brief on Donor Approaches to Governance Assessments:
This guide to donor governance assessment is aimed at governance specialists in donor agencies working on assessments and donor agency staff working in other sectors who encounter the realities of governance in their every day work. The document points out the risk of frequent duplication and overlap between donors’ governance assessment tools, as well as the need to improve practice with regard to greater reliance on partner country assessment processes. The authors also shed light on why, and how, donors make their own assessments and on the possibility of harmonising donor approaches to assessing governance.
