If there is one topic in development cooperation that transcends sectors and issues, it is developing capacity for governance. Good governance is a focal point in many projects and programs of the German Technical Cooperation. It is also a necessary element in every international declaration on development cooperation. In order to promote good governance successfully ?? i.e. to achieve actual progress ?? capacity development is essential. This book deals with governance issues in the water and health sectors and in relation to forests, land, public finance reforms, and civil society. Further, it includes the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development's publication The Challenge of Capacity Development: Working Towards Good Practice. Experts in German development cooperation present their experiences by offering detailed insights into their work. They analyze the influence and added value of capacity development in development cooperation and, first and foremost, demonstrate the importance of capacity development for fostering good governance.
