This Report has been commissioned by the CPDE Working Group on Enabling Environment with
Brian Tomlinson of AidWatch Canada, a member of CPDE and the Working Group. Research was
conducted over the period February to April, with the analysis prepared in May 2016. The author is
very grateful to the members of the CPDE Working Groups for providing sources for evidence, advice
on the approach to analyzing the data, and a review of the draft version of the Report. The author
would also like to acknowledge the research assistance provided by Richard Swift in reviewing and
collating the documentary evidence.
While this Report has been reviewed in detail and is fully endorsed by the CPDE Working Group for
CSO Enabling Environment and the CPDE Working Group for CSO Development Effectiveness, the
author is solely responsible for the collection and analysis of data as well as the conclusions reached
for each module of Indicator Two. The Working Group members have developed the summary of key
messages derived from this analysis.
