This report elaborates a conceptual framework of PE, where innovativeness, participatory performance and dynamic governance remain the key concerns.

Data analysis, both qualitative and quantitative, led to a number of findings described through the report. These findings constitute the base upon the PE framework (Chapter 3) is built.
