This report first summarises recommendations about potential strategic partners for SDC before providing summaries of the main actors in digitalisation and governance (mapping).
An issue paper (2016) - Governance support has to be inclusive if it is to be effective. Democracy support needs to find balanced ways of addressing the entire spectrum of actors in a democracy. Otherwise, the risk of doing harm increases.
This Policy Brief is a synthesis of donor-supported performance-based development projects, focusing on local development and decentralisation.
Purpose of this paper: (1) to develop an understanding of sub-national PFM and the motivations for the SDC to invest in this area; (2) to examine and categorise the types of sub- national PFM interventions; (3) to review existing SDC programmes that engage in sub-national PFM and identify potential roles for SDC.
This guidance aims to transfer the vision into daily practice. It does so by: [a] Clarifying organizational entry points to PFM, decentralization and local governance projects. [b] Defining key principles for effective PFM, decentralization and local governance interventions. [c] Creating awareness for complementary strengths and resources of SECO and SDC. [d] Providing practical guidance for institutional and thematic cooperation between SDC and SECO.

When working through best guesses, the element of Adaptive Management comes to the forefront, where deliberative and ongoing learning about what works and what does not in a partnership or programme.
