Implementing more effective interventions to solve development problems, improving public services, using resources efficiently, and managing public agencies effectively have been ongoing concerns for Latin American and Caribbean governments. Government officials are now paying closer attention to the results obtained by their administrations. Citizens are now demanding not only universal access but also quality in the services that the government provides. To meet this growing demand for public sector effectiveness, governments have formulated new laws, created or modified institutions, and implemented innovative management methodologies and instruments. The courses under this Program are focused on strengthening the knowledge and skills of development initiatives managers and policy makers to ensure greater effectiveness in public administration performance.
