VGP - Australia will provide an additional AUD9.7 million within four years from 2021 to 2025 to its funding to the Viet Nam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI) survey.

PAPI is a policy monitoring tool that reflects citizen experiences with central to local governments in performing their governance, public administration, and public service delivery functions

The new funding comes under co-sponsorship agreement signed between the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on July 13.

Australian Ambassador to Viet Nam Robyn Mudie affirmed the Australian Government’s strong support for Viet Nam’s efforts in promoting provincial governance and public administration, especially in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.

She expressed her delight on the continuing renovation of the PAPI in the context of many developments in the country, adding that the PAPI has added indexes of the effectiveness of authorities at all levels in e-Government and environment management. 

Australia’s remarkable contribution will help PAPI further boost governance and public administration efficiency in Viet Nam, said UNDP Resident Representative Caitlin Wiesen.

The UNDP will join hands with its partners to support Viet Nam’s localities to improve the effectiveness of public management and accountability, towards people-centered administrations. 

The PAPI is a joint collaboration between the Centre for Community Support Development Studies (CECODES) under the Viet Nam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA), and the UNDP in Viet Nam since 2009.

The PAPI is the country’s largest annual time-series, assessing three mutually reinforcing processes: policy making, policy implementation and the monitoring of public service delivery. 

Based on this citizen input, PAPI provides a set of objective indicators that help assess the performance in governance and public administration, while at the same time providing an incentive for provinces to improve their performance over the long term.
