Public sector institutions, as well as private businesses and non-governmental organisations, are often judged on the basis of their performance on key areas of performance. These may include effectiveness, efficiency, equity, corruption and rule of law, among many others. It is critical, therefore, to develop appropriate indicators in all these areas of performance. The workshop will review some of the performance measurement practices of international organisations and governments. Good performance measurement constitutes oversight on government activities, and ensures its accountability to the public; thus ensuring good governance.
