BETTER GOVERNANCE THROUGH SUSTAINABLE & INNOVATIVE
SNG supports innovation in governance and public financial management through an Innovation Challenge Fund window and Action Research interventions. This output support innovation and research in all SNG workstreams: planning, budgeting and budget execution, institutional strengthening, fiscal space, and inclusion and transparency. Governments increasingly face complex governance problems and need ‘thinking space’ and ‘catalytic investments’ to generate problem-driven, innovative ideas to address these challenges.
The SNG support for institutional strengthening includes:
Joint issue identification and problem definition
process and align the ADP to overarching provincial strategies, sector policies, and plans
Co-creating solutions with reform working groups
under the Secretary of the department, also involving non-government actors through hackathons
Joint grant partner selection
360-degree government ownership, and joint performance review of the progress on innovation
Regular synching with the department
to ensure adoption and scale-up, including through follow-up support like creating enabling regulatory environment
the other stream, focuses on exploring the burning issues in governance and helps generate understanding to resolve them.
