Public Administration Reform/Institutional Strengthening [PAR/I.S.]
What is the Programme about?
The Public Administration Reform/Institutional Strengthening [PAR/I.S.] initiatives are based on identifying the strategic mandate, current institutional gaps that hinder delivery, and a capacity development plan that includes staff development along with improvements to the enabling environment and organisational design. The aim is to build a lasting institutional legacy in critical and linked areas. The operational strategy for PAR/I.S. project contains two components: public administration management programme that provides practical training in common management skills (business planning, performance management, evaluation and risk management); and development of Local Governance (LG) Vision Paper that serves as a platform for future local governance intervention through road map and sequence of required activities.
- Key central government institutions staff capacitated their skills on business planning, performance management, evaluation and risk management resulting in cross-ministerial cooperation.
- Local Governance Vision Paper developed outlining main principles and components of local governance system and provided recommendations to the government to streamline policy and legal framework including a road map.
