The IGC is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by showcasing our most transformational growth ideas from the past decade. Running until December 2019, each week will focus on a key component of economic growth. This week focuses on public sector effectiveness.

Sustainable growth in developing countries requires effective public servants to deliver services such as health, education, infrastructure, and property rights. However the public sector often suffers from low capacity, inefficiency, and poor productivity. IGC research aims to understand the underlying causes of these issues and provide policy solutions relevant to their country context.
