'Country ownership is defined by the InterAction Aid Effectiveness Working Group as “The full and effective participation of a country’s population via legislative bodies, civil society, the private sector, and local, regional and national government in conceptualizing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating development policies, programs and processes.”'
People and organizations need to tune their mindset about country ownership. There is an exclusive focus on political power - voting, participation, consultation, etc. They should include economic power - direct payment of citizen ownership income. In addition to voice, there must be cash.
