Interactions that occur at the level of a country. Usually such interactions will involve the country's institutions.


See the comments on participatory interactions.

The Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG) gives a good impression of the interactions that may be organized by a national government.

Depending on tradition and resources the governments of most countries will not provide all these functions.

The range of functions provides a number of options that a national government could consider when addressing its development needs.

Whether a national government takes ownership of any interaction or not is indicated at the (country's actor map (Actor Atlas)).

When it is proposed in a National Development Plan (Framework) that a national government will take ownership of additional functions, then the related interaction and actant pages, baseline, blueprint and initiative atlas can support detailed and focussed planning, and implementation1.
