  • the legal framework;
  • infrastructure and budget;
  • institutional setup;
  • and capacity development.

This survey measures the government’s distance from the stated reform objectives on a scale of 0% (no action has taken place) to 100% (all the desired systems have been fully implemented, monitored, and evaluated)

Stakeholder Survey Methodology

Stakeholder surveys assess reform progress across four dimensions:

  • reform content and adequacy;
  • current performance;
  • reform progress;
  • and the expected outcomes.

Members of the stakeholder group (excluding implementing governmental stakeholders) set scores on a scale of 1 (poor performance) to 10 (strong performance) for each dimension.
