This programme brief describes the three gaps that CommGAP was established to address. These gaps undermine the effectiveness and sustainability of governance reform efforts: a structural gap, a process gap, and a capacity gap.
CommGAP's approach is outlined. It divides its work into three interrelated and mutually reinforcing program areas, each with specific objectives:
- Research and Advocacy
- Training and Capacity Building
- Support to Development Projects and Programs
CommGAP's operational activities are focused on Africa and Asia, and exclusively on the areas of governance and accountability, such as accountability mechanisms; participatory local governance; postconflict environments and fragile states; and anti‐corruption.
