An Overview of Country Initiatives

image of The Governance of Inclusive Growth

Achieving inclusive growth relates closely to how governments work and how policies are designed, implemented, delivered and evaluated. This publication presents an overview of country initiatives concerning inclusive growth in 39 OECD member and partner countries. It was prepared in the context of the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meetings held in Helsinki, Finland, on 28 October 2015. The publication focuses on four core issues: engaging with citizens and businesses for more inclusive policies and services; innovative policy design for inclusive growth; improving the delivery of services for and with citizens; and, strengthening accountability through better performance management and evaluation.




At the federal level, the Austrian government launched a comprehensive budgeting and public sector management reform in 2013. The reform introduced performance-oriented budgeting and a system of regulatory impact assessments in order to initiate a cultural change process with the goals of increasing efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery and leading to more transparent processes throughout the public administration. The reform has since initiated further public debate about performance targets, which has led to a number of further large-scale reform initiatives.
