Making Reform Incentives Work for Developing Countries Survey

Making Reform Incentives Work, Under contract with The College of William and Mary, NORC implemented the Making Reform Incentives Work for Developing Countries Survey, a complex and comprehensive Web survey which was administered to more than 30,000 respondents from donor agencies, embassies, and international organizations; domestic government officials; civil society representatives; private-sector representatives; and independent country analysts in 126 countries. The survey sought respondent input about policy instruments in their country that they believe best hastens the adoption of reforms, and the conditions under which such tools are most and least effective. The survey was translated and programmed in English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The College of William & Mary’s AidData have released two highly acclaimed reports using the groundbreaking survey results that analyze the interactions decision-makers in low and middle-income countries have with these with these development partnerships, revealing ways where the international community can further refine efforts to support long-run development outcomes.
