LPSI Expert Roundtable on Public Sector Finances, Subnational Governance And Local Public Service Delivery: Practices And Experiences In Measuring The Local Public Sector

LPSI News: Posted December 16, 2011

The Local Public Sector Initiative (LPSI) was initiated by The Urban Institute in December 2010 to advance the understanding of the local public sector. An expert roundtable has been scheduled on Friday, January 13, 2012, in order to bring together experts from USAID, The World Bank, the IMF, academia, and other selected policy practitioners. The purpose of the seminar and roundtable is to identify gaps in the state of knowledge on the linkages between local public sector finances, subnational governance and local public service in developing and transition countries.

The roundtable will also serve to gather input into LPSI's Local Public Sector data collection methodology in order to allow the effort to be informed by existing practices, experiences, and current shortcomings in the measurement of the local public sector and local public sector finances.
