Governance and service provision (Professional Development Reading Pack No. 38)

This reading pack summarises and links to 6 main readings with questions to guide the reading

Abstract

Over the past decade, development professionals have become increasingly aware of the fact that providing better services for the poor is as much about governance as it is about solving technical problems. Building new schools, health centres, and water points is all very well, but if teachers and nurses don’t turn up to work or perform poorly and if standpipes run dry because of lack of maintenance, development goals remain unfulfilled. This reading pack summarises and links to 6 key readings on the topic, listing questions to guide the reading.
