Governance for Growth, Stability and Inclusive Development

DFID’s new Governance Position Paper sets out our approach to governance in a changing world.



Open, inclusive, accountable governance is fundamental to delivering sustainable development and tackling global challenges. And it supports our national interest by contributing to international prosperity, security, and the rules-based international system.

The global context for governance and development is changing rapidly. This paper sets out how DFID will adapt to those trends, building on what we have learned about how governance can help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
