This book highlights the need for attending to smaller governance initiatives and practices which have successfully withstood the turbulence of the times and delivered goods and services to people. Governments belligerently adopt mega-reforms which remain underperformed due to their inability to resonate with the requirements of local people. The contributors have analysed some successful practices from across the region of Asia-Pacific and suggested ways in which such community led initiatives could involve governments, universities and NGOs to upscale and replicate them as the deadline to achieve MDGs approaches, and country governments face a performance test in United Nations.
