In the last of a three-part blog series on ODI’s Development Progress project, Kate Bird, research associate at ODI, discusses lessons learned from an assessment of more than 50 case studies on development: “1. Strong leadership and vision can drive progress with public support … 2. Local ownership supports innovation and accountability … 3. Funds come from many places, but must be well managed … 4. Flip flop policies and political patronage slow progress … 5. Progress not driven by or for people can be reversed … 6. External factors play a big part in a country’s progress” (2/16).
