Public sector reforms continue to be an integral part of governments' efforts to modernise the public service, making it more citizen-centric and responsive. Public service reforms that improve accountability and participation, reduce corruption and improve rulefollowing behaviour to reduce the discretion of officials, are particularly crucial. Key Principles of Public Sector Reforms contains a variety of case studies that member countries across the Commonwealth can replicate, adapt or customise according to needs and local contexts. Country case studies from Cameroon, Ghana, Grenada, India, Kenya, Rwanda, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania and Trinidad and Tobago speak to the policy reforms, strategies and methodologies deployed to support national priorities, especially through greater policy coherence, for sustained development and growth.



Principle 4: Goal-oriented Competencies and Skills Development

In the past decades, there have been mounting questions about the traditional role of the public services, largely because of emerging complexities associated with globalisation, democratisation, technology and expanding calls for accountable, responsive and innovative delivery of services. Case studies on the Ghana and India public services commissions explore issues related to competencies and skills development in government.
