Directorate for Public Governance

Design

 

  Designing policies for inclusive growth requires that all parts of government work together

  • Understand the types of policy instruments at the disposal of governments.
  • Join up government efforts and identify the best combination of policy instruments for more effective policies.
  • Learn from good regulatory practice to foster a whole-of-government approach.
  • Leverage budgets to promote coordinated policy action.
  • Lead and coordinate the role of the centre of government.

AVERTING POLICY CAPTURE

  • Policy capture has negative consequences on business competition in some countries, regions or sectors.

  • In some countries swings in market shares of companies can reflect the changing preferences of the political leadership for well-connected businesses.

  • Financial contributions by lobbyists in the political process also present a threat to fair and democratic decision-making.  View our work on Financing Democracy

 

WOMEN IN GOVERNMENT

  • Empowering and encouraging women to participate more fully in the public sphere is essential.

  • Gender diversity in public institutions is particularly crucial, given that these decision making bodies create the rules that affect people’s rights, behaviours and life choices.

  • Ensuring that governments reflect the diversity of the societies they represent guarantees a balanced perspective which enables an inclusive approach to policy making and service delivery. View our work on Women in Government


OPEN GOVERNMENT

  • Open government - the opening up of government processes, proceedings, documents and data for public scrutiny and involvement - is now considered as a fundamental element of a democratic society.

  • Greater transparency and public participation can lead to better policies and services.

  • Open Government promotes public sector integrity, which is essential to regaining the trust of citizens in the neutrality and reliability of public administrations. View our work on Open Government

 

REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS  

  • Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) is a systemic approach to critically assessing the positive and negative effects of proposed and existing regulations and non-regulatory alternatives.

  • RIA can underpin the capacity of governments to ensure that regulations are efficient and effective

  • RIA encompasses a range of methods and is an important element of an evidence-based approach to policy making.  View our work on Regulatory Impact Analysis

 

OPEN GOVERNMENT DATA

  • Open Government Data is a philosophy- and increasingly a set of policies - that promotes transparency, accountability and value creation by making government data available to all.

  • Public bodies produce and commission huge quantities of data and information. By making their datasets available, public institutions become more transparent and accountable to citizens.

  • By encouraging the use, reuse and free distribution of datasets, governments promote business creation and innovative, citizen-centric services. View our work on Open Government Data
