OECD Declaration on Public Sector Innovation: Adherence and other expressions of support

What is the OECD Declaration on Public Sector Innovation?

The OECD Declaration on Public Sector Innovation is an OECD legal instrument that establishes five principles, and associated actions, that governments or public organisations can use to inform (or enhance) innovation and its management.

Governments can adhere to the OECD Declaration

Adherence to the Declaration is open to governments of OECD Members and interested non-Members.  The text of the Declaration and a current list of Adherents is available here in English or here in French.
