English term or phrase:Whether it is calls for
I can not relate "Whether it is calls for greater" to other sentences?
Whether it is calls for greater accountability and transparency, en-
hanced effectiveness of development programs in exchange for for-
eign aid, or real results of political promises made, governments and
organizations must be increasingly responsive to internal and exter-
nal stakeholders to demonstrate tangible results. "The clamor for
greater government effectiveness has reached crisis proportions in
many developing countries where the state has failed to deliver even
such fundamental public goods as property rights, roads, and basic
health and education" (World Bank 1997, p. 2). In short, govern-
ment performance has now become a global phenomenon.
Governments and organizations all over the world are grappling
with internal and external demands and pressures for improvements
and reforms in public management. These demands come from a
variety of sources including multilateral development institutions,
donor governments, parliaments, the private sector, NGOs, citizens'
groups and civil society, the media, and so forth.
