Introduction

While PILDAT continued to assess performance of many policies and institutions related to governance since 2002 while facilitating Parliamentarians, Political Parties, Governments and Media to institute required reforms in areas including health and education, national and provincial affairs, water resource management and sharing as well as foreign policy and regional relations, in 2013 PILDAT developed an indigenous framework for systematically assessing quality of governance in Pakistan’s Federal and 4 Provincial Governments. The framework has included two-tier assessments – seeking and documenting of public opinion poll annually on the quality of governance in Pakistan and the performance assessment Score Cards based on obtaining published data from Federal and Provincial Governments.

Based on this framework since 2013, PILDAT has carried out annual assessment of quality of governance in Federal and Provincial Governments in the shape of Score Cards. Through developing the governance assessment framework and compiling annual scorecards from 2013-2016, PILDAT’s endeavour sought to understand the extent to which Pakistan’s democratically elected governments have delivered to their respective citizens in terms of providing good governance.

As the PILDAT assessment of quality of governance at the Federal and Provincial levels have been carried out as collaborative efforts by seeking published data from Governments, these assessments highlight areas of strengths and potential areas that may require improvements with the objective that policymakers, Government officials and politicians, alongside citizens and media, will benefit from the perspectives highlighted in governance assessment score cards.

Not only that the Federal and 4 Provincial Governments have been forthcoming in sharing data on governance every year reflecting Pakistan’s commitment to requirements of openness and transparency, the Governments have been very keen to receive, analyse and use the governance assessments and score cards annually.

Key Strengths

PILDAT is widely recognised for the following key strengths:

  1. Convening Power: Owing to our track-record as a serious, non-partisan organisation focused on quality of its work, PILDAT has developed a unique convening power that brings together diverse political spheres and voices from across the country on important national and global issues to affect policy reform.
  2. Relationships across the Political Spectrum: Because of PILDAT’s work over a decade in a non-partisan capacity, PILDAT enjoys relationship of respect with all key political parties. Not only political parties receive PILDAT’s reform proposals with an open mind, they often seek PILDAT’s support and advice on various policy issues relating to policy as well as internal governance. This also means that regardless of a party in opposition or in power, they are receptive to our analyses and proposals.
  3. Relationship with Media: Over the years, PILDAT has worked with the media to develop it as an ally. PILDAT’s work is sought and often quoted in the media. We take media as an important ally to further the work on reforms.
