In response to the growing recognition that an effective and efficient public sector is essential for stimulating economic growth and social welfare, the OECD is increasingly called upon to assist in building public sector capacity to ensure responsiveness to government priorities.
To achieve this objective, we have brought together national schools of government in a Global Network of Schools of Government. The Network provides direct access to OECD governance expertise and enables exchange of schools’ experiences and good practices in ensuring that public sector employees have the skills and competencies to address current and future priorities.
The OECD Global Network of Schools of Government supports countries in securing the long-term sustainability of public sector reforms by:
- strengthening the link between international policy dialogue and national efforts to build capabilities in the public sector;
- informing the OECD policy dialogue with lessons and good practices on implementation on the ground; and
- supporting international exchange among national schools of government and the policy-making community.
