Private Sector Engagement for Good Governance (PSGG) program
The World Bank Institute’s (WBI) Private Sector for Good Governance (PSGG) uses a framework to increase transparency, access to information and greater inclusion of all stakeholders in the policy-making debate. The framework is also used to help solve key sector constraints related to lack of coordination, unfair regulations, unaccountable transaction and non transparent information.
- Governance Environment Assessment Report (GEAR): A diagnostic of the level of collaborative policy making in a given sector;
- Open Thinking Initiative (OPT-IN): High-level engagements of country political leadership on key sectors where governance issues can impede growth, so as to identify challenges and foster political will;
- Multi-Stakeholder Engagement Platform (MSEP): Private sector invited to sector focused organized, transparent, inclusive, coordinated dialogue process with the government (based on 12 good practice principles) that seeks to develop actionable and constructive strategies to influence policy issues through collaborative governance; and
- Viral Outreach and Interactive Communication Exchange (VOICE): Help raise the voice of under-represented stakeholders (e.g. SMEs and the informal sectors) and identify demand and comparative advantages from a broader range of stakeholders, through surveys, communications and outreach campaigns.
Collectively these four tools are intended to help unlock systems to reduce corruption, remove barriers to entry, enable open competition, and improve service delivery to constituents.
