Abstract:Since the end of Apartheid in 1994 South Africa has used some innovative approaches to build more inclusive public institutions. Although much is known about the motivation and nature of these policies and institutional changes, very little is known of the manner in which they were executed. This book offers a selection of twelve case studies to illustrate how policies and institutions were developed and implemented to improve specific public services. Contributions: Developing an intergovernmental fiscal framework (Catriona Purfield); Increasing budget transparency (Neil Cole, Aarti Shah and Gert van der Linde); Raising tax revenue (David Hausman and Precious Zikhali); Strengthening performance monitoring and evaluation (Kathrin A. Plangemann); Creating an inclusive and credible statistical system (Misha V. Belkindas and Phindile Ngwenya); Expanding HIV/AIDS treatment (Patrick Lumumba Osewe and Yogan Pillay); Reforming the social assistance system (Lucilla Maria Bruni); Improving the delivery of identification documents to facilitate access to services (John Carneson and Zandile Ratshitanga); Protecting biodiversity, rehabilitating ecosystems, and promoting conservation for development (Christopher J. Warner, Claudia Sobrevila and George C. Ledec); Improving the management of the national road network (Ben Gericke); Developing renewable energy through an independent power producer procurement program (Joel Kolker); The making of the 1996 constitution (Ivan Velev and Nonhlahla Zindela).
