  10. 10. • Good governance has proven to be an effective platform upon which strategies should be implemented. • Macroeconomic (fiscal, financial, external) and political stability fuels positive expectations that lead to growth. • Economic growth is necessary but not sufficient for poverty reduction. • Growth strategies need to have spatial and sectoral dimensions to ensure inclusivity. • Disasters can negate the gains and even push back development. 10 Lessons Learned: Midterm Assessment of PDP 2011-2016
