The PSDNetwork has been identified with respect to various themes, i.e. security, governance and economic reconstruction. Development requires a minimum level of security and governance and vice versa. Without sufficient governance capacity, basic public service delivery is impossible and an enabling environment required for sustainable economic (pro poor) growth cannot be supported. This synergy is critical in order to ensure a comprehensive approach with respect to fragile states.
The Network consist of 5 Working Groups. Each of the working groups consist of a variety of involved actors: Ministries, NGOs, Private Sector, Knowledge Institutes.
