    OECD Urban Policy Reviews: Mexico 2015 - Transforming Urban Policy and Housing Finance

    In parallel to a sweeping structural reform agenda, Mexico announced in 2013 a new approach to housing and urban policy. Calling for a more explicit qualitative focus on housing and the urban environment, the policy shift is a welcome development. Mexico urbanised more rapidly than most OECD countries in the past half-century, in part as a result of the expansion of housing finance led by INFONAVIT and facilitated by policies aiming to expand access to formal housing. Yet the quantitative push for formal housing came with quantitative costs: inefficient development patterns resulting in a hollowing out of city centres and the third-highest rate of urban sprawl in the OECD; increasing motorisation rates; a significant share of vacant housing, with one-seventh of the housing stock uninhabited in 2010; housing developments with inadequate access to public transport and basic urban services; and social segregation. How can the Mexican authorities “get cities right” and develop more competitive, sustainable and inclusive cities? How can they improve the capacity of the relevant institutions and foster greater collaboration among them? How can INFONAVIT ensure that its lending activities generate more sustainable urban outcomes as it also fulfils its pension mandate and help Mexicans save more for retirement?

    Panorama des administrations publiques 2013

    Le Panorama des administrations publiques 2013 propose un tableau de bord des indicateurs clés dans le but de contribuer à l’analyse et à la comparaison au niveau international des performances du secteur public. Des indicateurs axés sur les recettes et dépenses du gouvernement et l'emploi sont présentés ainsi que des données portant sur des aspects clés des performances des administrations liées aux produits et aux réalisations dans les secteurs de la santé et de l’éducation

    Le Panorama des administrations publiques 2013 comprend également des indicateurs qui couvrent des aspects essentiels de la gestion et de la gouvernance publique tels que l’intégrité, l’administration ouverte, la gestion de la réglementation, les nouvelles pratiques d’accessibilité aux services publics ainsi que la gestion des ressources humaines et la rémunération dans le secteur public. Bien que la mesure de la performance des gouvernements soit reconnue depuis longtemps comme ayant un rôle important à jouer pour accroître l’efficacité et l’efficience du secteur public, la récente crise économique et les contraintes fiscales grandissantes dans plusieurs pays membres augmentent la nécessité de développer des indicateurs robustes pour accompagner les prises de décisions des gouvernements.
