This report provides an assessment of public governance and territorial development in Polish local self-government units (LSGUs). It offers key recommendations to governments at the national, regional and local levels in Poland on how to enhance development, improve service delivery and strengthen management processes within LSGUs. It addresses eight key thematic areas, including strategic planning, co-ordination across administrative units and policy sectors, multi-level governance and investment capacity, the use of monitoring and evaluation evidence for decision-making, budgeting, strategic workforce management, open government, and regulatory policy to reduce administrative burden and simplify public procurement. The report proposes a classification of LSGUs in Poland based on OECD typology, in order to reflect the economic functionality of specific regions/territories as a means to help LSGUs design more effective local development policies. A self-assessment tool for LSGUs in Poland complements the report and provides key indicators that allow counties and municipalities to assess their main strengths and weaknesses on public governance and local development practices, plan how to better serve citizens, enhance local sustainable development and engage with stakeholders to build a collective vision and plan of action.

The use of evidence in strategic decision-making in the LSGUs in Poland

This chapter analyses the use of evidence by Polish local self-government units (LSGUs), in designing, implementing and reviewing their policies and regulations. As such, it presents an overview of the mechanisms used by these subnational governments to monitor their policy priorities, as well as the institutional frameworks and capacities in place for evaluating public interventions. This discussion is followed by an assessment of the extent to which LSGUs use monitoring and evaluation evidence for decision- and policy-making purposes. The chapter ends with a forward-looking section.
