Thinking and Working Politically in the Land Sector in Mekong RegionBurns, T., Ingalls, M., & Rickersey, K. - 2022, September 11 - FIG Congress 2022, Warsaw, Poland
In recent decades, the World Bank and many bilateral development partners have provided funding to support land administration reform. Traditional land administration reform projects focus on the economic and technical design of interventions based on a library of best practice, commonly avoiding the “messy politics” typically involved in land governance. Experience and lessons from land administration reform initiatives have been documented and a recurrent theme is that many projects fail...
Understanding Governance from the Margins: What Does It Mean In Practice?Barnes, Katrina, B., Katrina, Anderson, C., de Chassy, S., … Wazir, R. - 2021 - Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
What does governance look like ‘from below’ – from the perspectives of poor and marginalised households? How do patterns of conflict affect that? These were the questions at the heart of the Governance at the Margins research project. Over three years from 2017-2020 we worked to explore this through in-depth study in conflict-affected areas of Mozambique, Myanmar, and Pakistan. Our research teams interviewed the same people regularly over that time, finding out how they resolved problems and...

Adaptive Programming in Fragile, Conflict and Violence-Affected Settings, What Works and Under What Conditions?: The Case of Pyoe Pin, Myanmar (Action for Empowerment and Accountability Research Programme)Christie, A., & Green, D. - 2018 - Itad, Oxfam and IDS
This paper examines adaptive approaches in aid programming in a fragile, conflict and violence-affected setting (FCVAS), namely Myanmar. A combination of desk review and field research has been used to examine some of the assertions around the ‘adaptive management’ approach, which has arisen in recent years as a response to critiques of overly rigid, pre-designed, blue-print and linear project plans. This paper explores if and how adaptive approaches, including rapid learning and planning...
Case study: Embedding reform and exiting: LASER’s application of the hourglass approach to achieve sustainable resultsManuel, C. - 2016 - DFID-LASER Programme
This case study describes how LASER has gone about enabling systemic change and sustainable uptake of reforms that address complex institutional problems in Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somaliland and Uganda. In each of these countries LASER has designed-in a sustainable approach from the start based on: (i) local ownership and leadership of reforms based on developing country (rather than donor) priorities; (ii) use of country (rather than donor programme) systems; and (iii) an...
