Making services work for the poor: the science and politics of delivery

Projects - September 2013 to July 2014
The 2004 World Development Report (WDR), Making Services Work for Poor People, is recognised as ground-breaking in its appraisal of accountability relationships and performance for service delivery. Ten years on, what have we learnt about the science and politics of service delivery – and what are the emerging issues that will shape future priorities? The Overseas Development Institute is co-hosting events in Washington DC and London to discuss new developments since the WDR original publication, and to reflect on data, trends and experience in different service delivery sectors.

Securing communities

Projects - July 2013
Community policing has gained popularity amongst donors,governments, police departments and communities as a mechanism for achieving a diverse range of goals – from crime reduction, to police accountability, to improved state-society relations. Yet while community policing initiatives are widespread across the globe, they manifest very differently from country to country, and there is little consensus on what community policing means, looks like, or aims to achieve.
