It also assesses the management of the civil service, as well as the implementation of open government strategies and initiatives to involve citizens and businesses in the policy cycle. This review provides concrete recommendations to support public governance reform in Paraguay.

Enhancing the strategic role of the Centre of Government of Paraguay

This chapter assesses the capacity of Paraguay’s Centre of Government to sustain whole-of-government co-ordination across administrative silos, notably for multi-dimensional policy-setting and implementation; strategic planning; decision-making; and monitoring and evaluation. It notes that Paraguay has made substantial progress in recent years in developing strategic planning as an instrument for systematic whole-of-government co-ordination. Despite this progress, the chapter flags institutional challenges that affect Paraguay’s Centre of Government institutional leadership and co-ordination capacities: the fragmentation of the Executive branch, the numerous institutions at the Presidency and the existence of limited or non-functional co-ordination instruments for high-level policy discussion and decision-making.
