Learning, Evidencing, Advocacy and Partnerships (LEAP) is one of the three pillars of the Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL). PERL is a five-year Public Sector Accountability and Governance programme, funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). The focus of the programme is to reform how governments organise their core business of making, implementing, tracking and accounting for policies, plans and budgets used in delivering public gooods and services to the citizens, and how citizens themselves engage with these processes.
LEAP is focused on strengthening the evidence base on governance reform by working with stakeholders to encourage the generation, demand for and use of evidence relevant to a wide range of public sector reform questions. LEAP aims to generate evidence on how PERL is contributing to governance reform and the improved delivery of public goods and services required for poverty reduction and growth, strengthen the evidence base on how Nigeria can bring about governance reform, and inform broader public debates, policymakers and policy communities concerned with public sector reform.
