    The drivers of reforms, mainly the international donor agencies and financial institutions have embarked on the reform agenda that is primarily centered on the New Public Management (NPM) model. With the failure of reforms in many developing countries, the international donor agencies are examining where they went wrong in their reform efforts. Against this backdrop, the main aim of this paper is to examine the main drivers of public sector reforms and the types of public sector reforms that have been undertaken in the small island developing countries, particularly, in the Solomon Islands. This study has implications for policy makers and academics.
