This Practice Note is based on the experiences of selected Country Offices and outlines the principal objective for UNDP’s engagement: to support national ownership and capacity development of national partners to be able to undertake and use governance assessments to enhance democratic governance. UNDP’s support for country-led democratic governance assessments is a key element of the organization’s broader agenda on democratic governance: to foster inclusive participation, strengthen accountable and responsive governing institutions, and ground governance in international principles of human rights, gender equity and integrity. This approach to democratic governance and the role of assessment therein, is included in the approved UNDP strategic plan for 2008-2011.
