Policy Brief on Cutting Red Tape (EnglishFrench)


Policy Brief on Tools to Initiate Regulatory Impact Assessments (English)
The Policy Brief on Tools to Initiate RIA is intended as a guiding instrument to design a Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) process, based on experience from OECD countries and pilot projects undertaken in developing countries. It is intended to help government officials to consider how to include RIA into the regulatory and policy-making process. The main goal of this paper is to provide a baseline for self-assessments of the viability, capacities and concrete steps to be taken towards the implementation of an adapted and thus country-specific RIA model.
