Report Launch: Improving Public Sector Performance through Innovation and Inter-Agency Coordination
13 Nov 2018 - 11:00
Jana Kunicova, Senior Public Sector Specialist at the World Bank and a lead author of the report, will look at How to make public sector work better in low and middle-income countries?
The Global Report on Public Sector Performance is a new publication series that attempts to address this question. Please join us for the launch of the inaugural report in this series, Improving Public Sector Performance through Innovation and Inter-Agency Coordination, developed by the Governance Global Practice and supported by the Bank’s Global Knowledge and Research Hub in Malaysia. The report documents 15 inspiring cases of positive change in non-OECD countries and teases out success drivers that recur in these examples. The report also shines a spotlight on a special topic -- policy and inter-agency coordination – drawing on the Bank’s experience supporting these reforms to distill what works and why.
