Aiding Institutional Reform in Developing Countries: Lessons from the Philippines on what works, what doesn’t and why
This paper examines two completed reform programs by the Foundation, one concerning the formalization of residential land rights, and the other taxation and public health. Written by David Booth, research fellow at Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the report explores how these transformational reforms were achieved with support from donors. This is the first paper in the Working Politically in Practice paper series.
While donors and aid practitioners increasingly recognize the value of working politically, many are struggling with how to operationalize a politically-informed approach to development assistance. A key contribution of this series will be case studies examining several examples of iterative, politically-informed Foundation programs that are currently underway or recently completed. The series is supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), The Asia Foundation, and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).
