Expert Group Meeting on ┐Strategies for Attracting the best talent in the Public Service in Africa"

Lilongwe, Malawi
14 - 18 November, 2011

A workshop on Strengthening Public Administration and Leadership Capacities at Local Level for the Achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will be held during the 33rd Annual Round-Table Conference of AAPAM. The workshop, a collaboration of DESA through the Division for Public Administration & Development Management (DPADM) and the African Association for Public Administration and management (AAPAM) aims to contribute to the strengthening of the capacity of public administration at local level for effective, efficient and equitable delivery of services through identifying strategies that strengthen local government capacities.

Local government officials will discuss challenges facing local level public administration and leadership within the context of achieving the MDGs under globalization and how such challenges can be overcome, to ensure developmental institutions at local level and achieve the intended results of decentralized governance.

The objective of the EGM is two-fold:
i) to highlight the challenges related to attracting and retaining high performing public servants to serve in the public service, and especially in local governments in rural Africa
ii) to propose strategies for attracting and retaining the best talent to boost improvement in the delivery of public service at local level.

The EGM will provide a forum for sharing knowledge as well as provide advice to policy formulators, especially human resource managers in the public service, on elements of policies and strategies that should be instituted to attract and retain the best human resources to serve at local level for effective implementation of government policies and programs especially those related to the achievement of the MDGs.
