The publication tells the story of how a country strategy was formulated to help government and civil society respond to the development challenges of a Pacific island's fragile state. By consistently focusing on identifying and building on the ownership and effective demand for change through consultative and participatory processes, the strategy reveals how the operations of a fragile state can be strengthened.
