SHARE THIS PAGE
This brief examines the progress of development partners and governments in international commitments to use country governance systems, identifies the challenges in fulfilling such commitments, and proposes steps that they can take to address underlying issues and meet their respective commitments.
The brief recommends that development partners and governments establish a common and contextualized understanding of using country governance systems and their practical advantages at all levels, and the risks to be addressed. In this way, they can holistically strengthen the country’s public financial management and procurement systems. A paced and collaborative approach is also required to build trust between partners, particularly on their respective priorities, systems, and practices.
