Sangli and Solapur, empower women and girls and unleash India’s true economic potential". an AICC functionary monitoring Maharashtra politics said, a surgeon, But with its actions it has given a divided Opposition an opportunity to unite.Heroics not needed?July 18)I put forward three simple premises Oneif important decisions are to be taken as part of a regular processthen it is necessary that decision-makers constantly mitigate risks in routine and in advance by favourably managing the risk factors likely to contribute to wrong decision-making or the perception thereof Twotodaythe role of evidence-based decision-making intermediated by credible technical/ techno-economic opinion is lowand that leaves decision-makers with less space to manoeuvre in sticky situations And threeunfortunatelythe overall environment itself is highly risk-averse So we need to address stakeholder concernsconsciously make efforts to mitigate risks and also better manage residual risk Pointing out thatactuallysolutions based on risk analysis are highly sector-specificrequiring each sector to work its own way throughI had however ventured to suggest a few generic solutions These include: encouraging independent or autonomous advisory bodiestechno-economic think-tanks and regulatory bodies to position themselves to provide considered and attributable consultancies to parliamentary committees and ministriesand creating similar internal units in internal regulatory organisations for better evidence-based policy analysis; stronger emphasis on HRincluding sufficiency of tenures and succession-planningpromotion of specialisation and multi-disciplinary expertise and developing policymaking skills in technocrats; more public debate by involving serving and retired decision-makers and senior technocrats; and a rolling communication strategy at enterprise (ministry) level Howevermuch of it will not work unless there is sector-specific process-reform to remove the impediments preventing decision-makers from taking decisions within a cleartransparentnon-arbitrary and evidence-based frameworkin an environment of reasonable accountability Process reform involves mainly those with the domain knowledge (serving and retired senior practitioners and decision-makers) and those at the receiving end of the process (such as industry associations) They mustwith the facilitation of those with expertise in process managementidentify and address the issues in the legislative and rules framework which need to be attendedincluding arbitrariness and undue discretion They must oversee the putting into place or restructuring of regulatory institutionstechno-economic bodiesetcto provide better inputs into policymaking and conceptualise the modern MIS architecture needed for better evidence-based decision-makingkeeping in view best practices There must be a review of the technical HR (in-house as well as outsourced) for role-determinationlatest qualifications and expertiseand creation of multidisciplinary expertise and organisational deployment Sector-wide processes of developing and updating technical and procedural manuals and standards in line with international practices must be started The broad picture in many sectors is currently one where old established and reputed institutions created in the 1950s and 1960sif not earlieras repositories of knowledge and centres of excellence are falling into decay; premier institutions are no longer throwing up enough scientists and technocrats of high repute and international standingwho can make their voice heard in policy formulation; senior policymakers often do not have the depth of experience because of inadequate attention to specialisation and career-planninggiven the uncertainties in managing such a diverse HR pool in an all-India context An equally bleak picture presents itself in the area of information management for evidence-based decisions There is no comprehensive sectoral information architecture Data and information is supply- rather than demand-or ratherneed-driven There is very little vertical online collaboration between the Central government and state government systems Horizontal online collaboration between Central databases is also too inadequate and sporadic to add value to evidence-based decision-making It is not possible to suggest specific initiatives or go into greater detail without a sectoral context but it is possible to identify a few cross-sectoral initiatives Onea Central initiative for institutional renewal of old established and reputed premier institutions engaged in pioneering work at sectoral level Twothe recent thrust given by the National Statistical Commission to the concept of core statistics based on demand (in factit should be need) be taken up as a national missionwith more emphasis on building up capacity in states to collectshare and better utilise the data Threea Central initiativein collaboration with statesand educational and research institutions to jointly create large databasesincluding spatial databasesfor multiple purposes The ongoing mechanism of National Natural Resource Management System (NNRMS) located in the Planning Commission could be professionalised and greatly expanded for the purpose Foura detailed review of the concept of organised services in order to develop a comprehensive framework for HR management at a sectoral level particularly for technical services that need to grow and provide inputs for policymaking Fiveencouraging and facilitating and finally mandating sectoral ministries to create a mechanism to develop domain-specific legal expertise on outsourced basis (with the aim of systematically enhancing the pool of freely accessible domain-specific legal expertise in the long run) Sixwherever applicabledevelop a sector-specific environmental and social management framework within which policies and programmes can be developed and managed in a more secure spacewith an internal regulator to enforce itif necessary And finallyby ensuring that each ministry has a risk management framework that constantly reviews and assesses policiesprogrammes and procedures for key risks through a confidential annual risk management report prepared under the guidance of the ministrys financial adviser so as to devise and implement internal controls to manage residual risks The writer is secretaryministry of rural development For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
