Tools for Reformers
Business Environment Reform (BER) for sustainable development is a key avenue for policymakers to enable inclusive growth, job creation, and poverty reduction. The business environment comprises the policy, legal, institutional, and regulatory framework conditions that govern business activity. To ensure that these conditions set the right incentives and respond to businesses’ needs, including the voices of private stakeholders is important for an effective BER. Inclusive Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) is therefore essential throughout the reform process for better-informed decision-making.The ICR Facility supports business environment reform initiatives in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.
