Effective and open government can create more inclusive development. As an emerging international leader, India has already adopted cutting edge policies such as the Right to Information Act and its widespread use of open data. Is there more to be learned from international experience to further the governance agenda in India? This half-day rountable considers international and national evidence on better governance and service delivery.
The Government of India already highly values producing and using high-quality evidence. There are good examples of government supporting effective governance, and facilitating stakeholder engagement to for better public service delivery.
To help further these critical goals, the Campbell Collaboration, the Global Development Network (GDN) and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) are organising a half-day rountable that brings together national and international economic growth and development specialists to discuss the evidence, and how to leverage national and global research-based evidence on governance and service delivery in India.
Experts will discuss the evidence that exists and what is needed in these areas:
Existing research and evidence gaps on governance in India
The use of evidence in decision-making at different levels in the Government of India
The interest of government agencies and Indian and global research organisations in collaborating to address evidence gaps and research and evaluation priorities
The specific role of global research, evaluation and evidence synthesis organizations in supporting evidence-informed government decision-making in India, including collaborative capacity building
