Policy Practice Brief 5 - Carrying out a Joint Governance Assessment - Lessons from Rwanda


A joint governance assessment aims to bring government and development partners together to undertake a joint assessment of governance performance based on commonly agreed indicators. The first assessment of this kind was undertaken in Rwanda during 2008. Based on first hand experience of supporting this process, this policy brief reflects on the usefulness of a joint approach to governance assessment and offers practical guidance on how it might be applied elsewhere.
