The Collaborative Partnership to Improve Work Participation (the Collaborative Partnership) is a unique public-private sector alliance to drive fresh approaches to improving work participation for Australians with a temporary or permanent health condition or disability that impacts their ability to work.

A multistakeholder partnership created a regional indicators-based monitoring system to track pro-poor health policy change across the Southern African Development Community (SADC), a low-income region beset by socio-economic costs of a high disease burden. This stimulated SADC’s Result-Based Regional Monitoring and Evaluation initiative. Extending to all SADC priority areas, Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (RBME) enables real-time tracking of regional performance, documentation of results at country level and the facilitation of evidence-based decision-making and learning

Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) led the design and implementation of a national poverty reduction strategy public engagement process. We offered Canadians multiple ways to share their views, from public town hall events to online discussions, to a youth contest, to an in-depth research project. The engagement process successfully reached thousands of Canadians in a short time frame on a low budget. The plan is now used as a Government of Canada model for effective civic engagement.
The Client Experience Measurement Survey Model was developed by Employment and Social Development Canada to gather and analyse client feedback to improve service delivery to its clients. Canadians have been able to express their views on government programs and services, which have informed the way programs and services are designed and delivered. The survey allows the tracking of service satisfaction, ease of access, effectiveness of service delivery, and the experience of particular programs and client groups in depth. It provides accurate and reliable data on satisfaction drivers, service improvements, and client groups facing barriers.
Originally conceived as a planning tool, HeritageMaps.ie is a user-driven, web-based mapviewer focusing on the built, cultural and natural heritage around Ireland and offshore.

HeritageMaps.ie a free ‘one-stop-shop’ for heritage data and acts as a discovery portal, providing direct links to promote research.

Experimentation Works (EW) is a Government-of-Canada initiative to build public servants’ capacity in experimentation skills and practice through a learning-by-doing model that supports and showcases 5 small-scale experiments in the open. EW seeks to generate practical examples of experiments and ensure open access to learning materials, progress updates and results for broad impact. It works by connecting project teams with each other, and with experts in a open-by-default “cohort model."
