About Governance & Institution Sector

Governance and institutional development is TARU’s niche area of work. Our policy and reform based inputs have been appreciated across India and several other countries. Within this sector, we contribute to a wide range of subjects, which include but are not limited to: public policy, change management, economics and strategies, infrastructure planning and analysis, capacity assessment, decentralized planning, reforms, evaluations, recommendations, social protection and exclusion, socio-economic development, migration, gender, natural resources, climate change and disasters.

For example, TARU’s State of Panchayati Raj Report 2010-11 for the Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR), Government of India, provided in-depth reviews on the policies and programmes to strengthen PRIs and respond to their emerging needs. Our strategic reviews of DFID India’s Governance Portfolio across four states (Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal), study on Key Stakeholder Perceptions of Multilateral Organization Effectiveness in India, ADB Country Partnership Strategy, SIDA’s Country Strategy on Water & NRM, have outlined strategic options and future focal areas, and are considered pioneering work in this field.

The sector governance and institution provides services in Policy Analysis, Situation Analysis and Strategy Development, Programme Design and Feasibility Analyses, Institutional, Social, Financial, Economic and Technical Appraisal, Implementation Task Structuring and Project Management Support, including (Institutional Development, Management Information System (MIS) Design and Implementation, Programme, Communication, Capacity Assessment and Building Support), Secondary and Primary Research, including (Baseline and other Socio-economic Studies, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), Result Monitoring), Impact Assessment related service.
