Please look at the following question.

"However,public service delivery in the country faced shortcomings due to overlapping among Government's bodies,low efficiency of funds allocation,
little engagement from the non-state sector and poor supervision and evaluation,an institute survey indicated"

I couldn't understand why the writer write as " a little engagement". I think we can count the number of engagements. is my thought wrong?
I think "engagement" in the sentence means an arrangement or an appointment. Does "engagement" used in the sentence not mean that?

Thank you for your answer in advance.
See meaning #6 of 'engagement' here.
