This toolkit helps locate where the constraints are identifying the degree to which they arise from problems within the service-providing agencies, or from difficulties at other provincial or national levels. It diagnoses the nature of the constraints external to the service provider, including the degree to which poor performance is rooted in weak provincial and national arrangements for policymaking, for ensuring resource flows, and for ensuring accountability. The toolkit is being piloted in Ethiopia, Benin, and Argentina.
