Oslo Governance Centre • 8 October 2019

"The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) issued a report discussing ways public governance can strengthen SDG implementation, based on experiences, good practices and lessons learned from countries around the world. Among other purposes, the publication supports a new initiative from the OECD and the UN Development Programme on governance of the SDGs.

The publication titled, ‘Governance as an SDG Accelerator: Country Experiences and Tools,’ includes sections on: whole-of-government and policy coherence; stakeholder participation and open government; effective use of budgeting and public procurement tools; monitoring, evaluation and audit insitutions; fostering a culture of integrity and fighting corruption; and governance frameworks to ensure equal access to justice and citizens’ legal empowerment, and to support gender equality. Each chapter is accompanied by case studies."
