Expert Panel: Working Effectively in Multi-Level Governance Contexts

May 28 - May 29


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.

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.
