Learning Lessons: Supporting Good Governance in the Pacific
Asian Development Bank | June 2012
Good governance and sound public sector management matter to development. It is widely agreed that better governed countries will likely make better development progress than poorly governed countries. In the majority of ADB developing member countries in the Pacific, progress is sluggish on social and economic development objectives, including the Millennium Development Goals. While all Pacific governments have committed to improving governance, and ADB and other development partners continue to provide support, there remain key concerns in issues of capacity, implementation, and enforcement. In a 2011 special evaluation study, the Independent Evaluation Department explored governance and development in the Pacific, assessed ADB’s support for governance and public sector management in the past decade, and presented lessons and recommendations.
