Collaborative Governance Assessment CGIAR Research Programme on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (2012)

Many development interventions fail because they don’t address governance obstacles, or don’t take advantage of governance opportunities. This Guidance Note presents a simple approach to analyzing the governance context for development of aquatic agricultural systems; it is intended as an aid to action research, and a contribution to effective program planning and evaluation. It provides a brief introduction to the value of assessing governance collaboratively, summarizes an analytical framework, and offers practical guidance on three stages of the process: identifying obstacles and opportunities, debating strategies for influence, and planning collaborative actions.
