For sound governance, a government must actively respond to its citizens’ expectations to deliver services, create regulations, and enact laws and rights across all sectors. In development, we’re increasingly looking at how a country’s government implements laws and rights, which gets to institutional effectiveness. Are government institutions doing their job effectively? Are they meeting their citizens’ needs? In the longer term, how will these actions advance the country’s development goals?

On February 15, Abt and its governance experts hosted a discussion on
 how #SoundGovernance at the institutional-level plays an important role in achieving development goals. Read the recap below.

Meet Abt's experts:
  Tiernan Mennen
Vice President, Governance and Rights
