Where possible we work to strengthen local capacity in developing countries to manage and deliver improvements in health care, education, governance and economic management. Frequently NGOs and private sector consultants assist these efforts. We have established a Business Partnership Unit in DFID in order to work with the private sector to encourage and facilitate beneficial investment in developing countries. We are currently consulting NGOs and civil society world wide on how NGOs can best assist the implementation of the international poverty eradication strategy.
