Inclusive Governance: Transforming Livelihood Security: Experiences from CARE Bangladesh

Roopa Hinton

Publisher: Care Bangladesh


The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the fransformative potential of inclusive local governance in generating more secure livelihoods and coping strategies of extreme poor people. The research presented in this paper tests the implicit assumption that inclusive governance, which leads to more equitable access to resources and services, also contributes to tangible improvements in the livelihood security of chronically poor people. It concludes by arguing that for Donor and Government strategies to have a real impact on poverty eradication and improved livelihood security it is essential that they invest in building local capacities, ensuring that decentralisation really does integrate diverse voices and bring new forms of decision-making and accountability between state and citizens.
