Public Sector Performance and Development Cooperation in Rwanda : Results-based Approaches (Hardcover)
about this item
This study provides a conceptual framework for analysing results-based approaches to improving public sector effectiveness and efficiency according to their actor constellation and shared characteristics. Though there is consensus regarding the importance of functioning public sector agencies and organizations for sustainable development, public sector reform efforts have historically only had modest success. Results-based approaches aim at improving public sector performance through the establishment of reward modalities on domestic as well as international levels, and the authors of this work evaluate the potential of these approaches to provide an entry point for development cooperation. Applying their framework to empirical data obtained from fieldwork in Rwanda, they analyse the main domestic performance approach – Imhigo – and suggest how the system might be strengthened.
