IOG offering expertise on decentralized forms of governance in Iraq
The IOG team with Deputy Prime Minister, Dr. Rowsch Nuri Shaways and UNDP’s Bob Boase.
On February 16, a senior IOG delegation left for Iraq. The group, led by Maryantonett Flumian, has been sharing its expertise on decentralized forms of governance to the government of Iraq. The group has participated in a conference where they examined how to best integrate decentralized governance inside the overall public sector modernization activities that are currently taking place in Iraq.
Throughout their stay, the group is engaging with Iraqi government officials, the UN Public Sector Modernization Team and other parts of the international community to discuss public administration issues. The work is to be conducted in collaboration with the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Iraq under the leadership of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
In order to make significant progress on the required reforms for effective decentralized governance and ensure that necessary public administration reforms are undertaken, it is vital for the government of Iraq to arrive at a new strategic and policy framework in this domain. The IOG takes great pride in supporting this important initiative.
