Regulatory Policy Committee and the MENA-OECD Governance Programme Working Group IV
Meeting Participants from MENA and OECD Countries
To improve economic and social welfare it is vital to have strategic regulatory planning methods. This MENA Special Session provided a day in which to address fundamental questions of why, what and how to regulate and how to measure the effectiveness of the regulation. Each element of this life-cycle was explained through a practical presentation, illustrated by real examples from MENA and OECD countries.
Moreover an examination of how to overcome strategic and technical implementation barriers as part of the strategic regulatory planning exercise was discussed along with how to avoid poorly prepared regulations that often remain unchallenged.
In a separate session, delegates also discussed the contribution of the Working Group to the Rule of Law agenda and work on gender-sensitive regulatory quality frameworks.
Session 1: Introduction to strategic regulatory planning: Why, what and how to regulate? And how do we know that we are successful?
Session 3: Closing the loop: Planning for evaluating and reviewing regulation
