of investment climate, service delivery, governance and the local

Isolation, remoteness, low population density, ethnic and linguistic
diversity, corruption, limited human resource capacity and conflict have
all contributed to the disappointing results of development efforts in
the past.

address these challenges, BaKTI has focused on providing platforms for
sharing development knowledge and experience, building bridges and
networks among local reform champions, and supporting these actors to
