Developmental Leadership Program

Australia supports innovative research and policy work on governance through the Developmental Leadership Program. The program looks at the critical role that leaders, networks and coalitions play in achieving development outcomes. This work will improve our understanding of how to support successful and realistic governance reforms and institutional change in developing countries.

OECD Governance Network

DFAT supports and participates in the Governance Network (GovNet) of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee. GovNet provides a forum for OECD members to exchange experiences and lessons on governance aid programming, and develop policy, analytical tools and operational approaches for the governance sector. The network focuses on two main work areas: accountability and anti-corruption; and exploring better and different ways for development assistance providers to do their work.
