Om boka

In the recent decade, governments worldwide are increasingly focusing on being community-centric and outcomes-based. Consequently, they are starting to move towards outcomes-based approaches to public financial management systems. An outcomes-based approach allows government service agencies and specific program areas to organize and communicate priorities to achieve what matters and makes a difference rather than just going through the motions. Empirical evidence on how government agencies in emerging economies go about this contemporary approach and issues affecting these practices is limited.


This edited collection of chapters is aimed at covering public sector reform and performance management in emerging economies with special reference to outcomes-based approaches in practice in government services. Practices from developed economies contained in the first book on the topic have been published by Routledge in February 2021. The insights offered on the topic are written by renowned scholars who have identified important issues pertinent to those interested in public sector governance, accounting, accountability, and performance management effectiveness in emerging economies.


The book will be highly accessible to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of accounting, public administration, development studies, and other non-accounting audiences alike.
