Explore our work with partner countries. Each country page includes local updates, case studies, reports and other resources.

Our work with partners aims to:

  • Support initiatives that build the capacity of government systems to plan, manage and deliver services for the poorest.
  • Channel resources through government systems ensuring that services reach those in greatest need.
  • Build the capacity of institutions that will hold government to account, such as judiciary, parliament, human rights commissions and media.
  • Strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations to make sure that governments are responsive and accountable, and better equipped to meet the needs of their citizens.
