International Governmental Organizations (IGOs)

The four major IGO providers of advice on public policy and management subjects

The four major international governmental organizations (IGOs) providing advice on public policy and management are the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In addition, there are a number of regional and specialized IGOs that provide advice to governments (see links below).

The Atlas attempts to map the public management advisory work of one of these IGOs, the OECD, according to the Atlas domains and subjects (see Atlas Framework for Curricular Analysis). Links to relevant departments or collections within the other three agencies, plus the United Nations Public Administration Network, are also provided for comparison and reference purposes, or where the authors have deemed these additional details to be instructive.
