The Organization for Economic and Co-operation Development (OECD) analysis shows that conducting RIA within an appropriate systematic framework can underpin the capacity of governments to ensure that regulations are eﬀicient and eﬀective in a changing and complex world.
Successful implementation of RIA can be administratively and technically challenging. This course is designed to assist policy makers, regulators, and the business community in designing and implementing eﬀective analyses. Through learning about the RIA Roadmap, the course will use case studies of actual RIAs, including contextual evidence and result scenarios. Participants also undertake action planning and will learn how to form the legal/policy framework for RIAs and conduct RIAs in their own countries and organizations.
Through successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
