Solomon Islands Economic and Public Sector Governance Program: Independent review and management response
Summary of publication
An independent review of the Solomon Islands Economic and Public Sector Governance Program was conducted in 2014. The motivation for the review stems from DFAT's concern that the program might face the difficulty observed in many public sector reform programs, particularly in fragile states, of fractured connections between central agencies and downstream line ministries and delivery agencies. All too often, donors report improvements at the centre but counterparts and citizens do not experience improvements in services or in the enabling environment for growth. In recognizing this, DFAT sought a fresh approach to achieving the institutional changes envisaged in SIGOV and accordingly commissioned this review to assist this reconsideration.
