The voices of those at the bottom of the wealth pyramid should be emphasised during the preparation of the National Governance Assessment Framework, Prime Minister's International Affairs Advisor Gowher Rizvi said yesterday.

The Governance Innovation Unit of the Prime Minister's Office and the United Nations Development Programme, in collaboration with Centre on Budget and Policy, Dhaka University organised the programme at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre.

The NGAF is a country-contextualised governance assessment framework that aims to assist in creating an inclusive and peaceful society with access to justice for all alongside effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
