In many African countries, central and local governments continue to provide services to citizens. Governments have also contracted out some public services to the private sector and not - for - profit organizations. Regardless of the mode of delivery, citizens perennially express dissatisfaction with the quality, quantity and cost effectiveness of public services, lack of transparency in service provision, “rent seeking” behavior and poor customer relations. The programme will address emerging methods and approaches in improving public service delivery.
