evaluation, indicators, UNDP
UNDP seeks to develop a set of non-ranking governance indicators to be used by developing countries to be used to enhance governance capacity and help guide policy to become more pro-gender and pro-poor. This status note lays out the findings of the mapping as well as guidelines for developing the indicators that can foster democratic governance through partnerships, capacity building, local ownership and empowerment of marginalized groups.
