The "use of country systems" report provides a synthesis of research, country case-studies, and engagements commissioned and undertaken by CABRI. The report provides a ground-breaking account of the form and extent that Development Partners (donors) make use of the systems that are in place in Partner Countries (recipients of aid). More importantly, the report provides the basis for country-level dialogues between stakeholders to determine the extent that local systems should be used, and also agree on a course of action that can lead to greater use of local systems.
