The current state of transparency and participation in public finance in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Transparent and participatory PFM systems are integral to good public financial management.  Budget transparency has improved over time in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), as reflected in the country’s ranking on the latest Open Budget Index (OBI) by the International Budget Partnership (IBP).

It demonstrates that the effectiveness of horizontal (cross-sectoral) and vertical (between levels of government) coordination – essential for a nexus approach – is determined by institutional relationships, which can be influenced ...

Social service delivery in violent contexts : achieving results against the odds
A report from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nepal

The findings unearth issues about how development organizations should approach service delivery in contested settings. As many countries today are riven by conflict and internal division, some familiar rules of the game may be inadequate to deal with the mounting humanitarian and development challenges posed by complex conflict ...
