Effective public administrations are central to realizing a world free of poverty on a livable planet. Faced with the growing demand for increasingly complex government services from citizens, coupled with mounting fiscal pressures and a widening trust-deficit between citizens and their public administrations, a paradigm shift in approaches to improving public administration performance is urgently needed. In recognition of this challenge, the World Bank invites world leaders, experts, and practitioners to participate in the Public Administration Global Forum on Transforming Governments for a Livable Planet, to be held in Washington, D.C., from May 28th – 29th, 2024.
