The Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management (CAPAM) is holding its 12th biennial conference in Georgetown, Guyana, from October 22 to 24, 2018. The conference will focus on the theme, “Transforming the Public Sector for Climate Governance.”
Organizers noted that this event is not intended as a platform for gloom-and-doom scenarios, but rather. an opportunity for experts and practitioners to set out arguments for a prosperous future that includes the public service as being responsible custodians for the environment. They said that the conference will provide attendees with background information that underscores the economic and environmental challenges at their doorsteps while pointing out the risks with which the public service should be preoccupied in achieving results and being accountable.
Designed for an international audience of senior public sector managers and administrators, the three-day event will offer insightful dialogue, theoretical and practical knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. Attendees from over 23 countries will experience a rich programme including 36 esteemed speakers and moderators who will thoroughly explore the conference theme.
To enrich and complement the experience, local authorities are organizing a unique and special programme of learning journeys for delegates. As always, the conference programme will culminate with the CAPAM International Innovations Awards presentations to recognize excellence in public service innovation.
