Drivers of Change

Drivers of Change is a way of understanding the political economy of change and poverty reduction in developing countries. It directs attention to the structural and institutional factors likely to 'drive' change in the medium term, and to the underlying interests and incentives that affect the environment for reform.

Adopting a Drivers of Change approach requires that we make the local situation our point of departure, rather than preconceived policies.
