The public sector provides several inputs to economic growth and their effectiveness ultimately relies on the effort and skills of the agents hired to deliver them.

Economics Association of Zambia (EAZ), the Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) and the International Growth Centre (IGC) will on Tuesday, 17th March, 2015 hold a public discussion dubbed: ‘Incentives of Public Service Delivery’.

The seminar presentation will be delivered by Oriana Bandiera, a professor of Economics from the London School of Economics (LSE) whose expertise includes incentives and contracts in a different range of organisations and countries.
This seminar will focus on a number of issues which will include:

·         How the State can use incentives to recruit, motivate and retain talented agents;

·         The material incentives that attract talent and if they discourage altruism;

·         The material incentives that motivate agents to perform better; and whether they crowd-out their intrinsic motivation and reduce performance.

The discussion will be held at the Taj Pamodzi hotel, Lusaka and will begin at 18:00 to 20:00 hours. This lecture provides some answers from recent field experiments, including collaboration between researchers and the Zambian Ministry of Health.
