Public policy and governance in Africa - PP&G
When it comes to rural development and natural resource management, a clearer understanding of the changes in public action, the connections between the different levels on which decisions are made, the multiplicity of organisations and operators (public and private), and the historical and cultural links between institutional frameworks, modes of governance and the instruments associated with them should enable a more effective response to the concerns voiced by our local and global partners. The aim is also to engage discussion and contribute to the debate on governance issues.
