About Our Work
With support from the Making All Voices Count initiative (MAVC), we’re working with six MAVC grantees from five countries (South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, the Philippines, and Indonesia) as they engage their governments through the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
The project is motivated by a simple goal: to strengthen the impact and effectiveness of MAVC grantees, while also contributing to learning about how international actors, like MAVC, can more effectively support their in-country colleagues. Our efforts are informed by the fact that open governance reform is political and complex. And as a result, there aren’t blueprint approaches to making progress towards more open governance. Rather, pro-reform actors, including our MAVC partners, might benefit from a flexible approach to engaging with, navigating, and making incremental progress towards overcoming the knotty challenges presented by their contexts. Our take is that they might benefit from a method by which to learn, and improve, as they go — a method, in other words, like adaptive learning.
In addition, as we work to strengthen the effectiveness of our partners on the ground, we’re also generating evidence on whether and how adaptive approaches might strengthen the work of external actors, like MAVC and the OGP. By the project’s conclusion, we’ll synthesize the lessons from this work, and make recommendations to inform the evolution of OGP, initiatives like MAVC, and other external actors, in the future.
