For development to benefit all, then institutions and political systems must work in the interest of all citizens. Achieving and sustaining pro-poor change requires good governance: legitimate and accountable rulers, an active civil society and a responsive and capable public administration. It also requires a sound understanding of informal political structures and practices that enable or prevent poor people exercising their voice and realising their rights.
Aurecon is committed to building governance systems that establish a capable state, encourage a vibrant private sector, and enable the poor to participate more equitably and effectively in society.
