dc.description.abstractThe development community has a preferred, tried, and tested way of supporting development. Development assistance, as currently structured, works best when the recipient government has a clear commitment to poverty reduction, and where the governance institutions have been restructured to maximize the development impact of both government (supply-side) and civil society (demand-side). The standard for this approach is embodied in the PRS, where the transparency of the Government’s commitment is reinforced with accountability, providing development partners with a higher degree of assurance that development resources will be appropriately managed, thus facilitating budgetary support. In this environment, development partners can focus on apolitical technical solutions to capacity constraints confronted by most government organizations, confident that the necessary political safeguards are in place.

    ADB's Governance Brief series was introduced to respond to inquiries and demands for short, easy to read references on specific governance related issues. While there is considerable literature on governance issues, much of it is too specialized, technical, and/or extensive for the typical interested reader.
