Ctrl Alt Del: Resetting Government

Resetting government is an initiative convened by the Government and Public Policy (GAPP) Foundation to provide practical and feasible solutions to urgent governance questions.

Our Aim

GAPP will work to win the argument that building autonomous and professional administrations is vital to the long-term development of the country.
