Why is shaping the public sector key to a better world?

Past Event State and State Effectiveness

Watch a recording of the event here:

Good governance requires good people in government. The global goal of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030 can only be achieved with effective governments in developing countries. Yet, low productivity and performance among civil servants significantly hinders the effectiveness of health, education, and other public service delivery and of government more broadly. Governments face fundamental challenges such as determining the right individuals to select for public sector jobs, recruiting these candidates effectively, and motivating them to perform well.

This panel explores the importance of public sector effectiveness for development and inclusive growth, and recent evidence from Ghana on the impact of interventions, such as improving management practices and training, on public sector productivity. A key objective of this event is to demonstrate a case study from IGC’s work in Ghana of how policymakers and researchers can successfully collaborate to improve policies.

When: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM (BST), Wednesday, 9 September 2020
