BDO-IPG Overview

The key challenge facing both public sector institutions and private enterprises in developing nation environments is the drive to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and Poverty Reduction Strategies.

Almost invariably this involves matching local priorities against “best international practice” – for the public sector, the focus is on encouraging the efficient and transparent planning and provision of value-for-money services, particularly to the disadvantaged members of the community; for the private sector, the challenge is to operate profitably in an increasingly global and competitive marketplace. In both the public and private sectors, the skills and resources essential to achieve these objectives are often lacking and the international donor community is committed to significant levels of support to help to address these issues.
