SIGMA at a glance

SIGMA (Support for Improvement in Governance and Management) is a joint initiative of the European Union and the OECD. Its key objective is to strengthen the foundations for improved public governance, and hence support socio-economic development through building the capacities of the public sector, enhancing horizontal governance and improving the design and implementation of public administration reforms, including proper prioritisation, sequencing and budgeting. We have been working with countries on strengthening their public governance systems and public administration capacities for over 20 years.
