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.




Ireland has implemented a number of initiatives aimed at better engaging with citizens and stakeholders in the policy process. In July 2014, Ireland became a full member of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) on publication of its first OGP National Action Plan. Prior to this, a two day OGP Europe Regional Conference was held in Dublin in May 2014, which brought officials and civil society together to discuss many topical issues and policies. A draft version of the OGP plan was published for public comment during the event.
