This report presents an overview on approaches to governance-related issues and links with poverty reduction objectives of development cooperation among a sample of European Union (EU) Member States and other donors. The report forms part of a study commissioned by the European Community Poverty Reduction Effectiveness Programme (EC-PREP) to contribute to the definition of a consistent and common EU approach to governance related issues within the EC Directorate General Development (EC-DEV) initiative on Institutional Capacity Building. The Development Policy Coherence and Forward Studies unit within EC-DEV/B1 is coordinating this initiative.
The report is divided into four main sections:
- Section 1: provides contextual information including study objectives, core good governance areas covered, study methodology and analytical framework used.
- Sections 2 & 3: provide summary profiles of both Member State and other donor approaches to good governance.
- Section 3: offers an analysis of emerging themes and issues arising from the donor profiles in line with the study objectives.
- Section 4: presents the study's main conclusions and recommendations
