Côte d'Ivoire Announces 2024 Public Service Recruitment Exams

The government of Côte d'Ivoire has announced that it will launch public service recruitment exams on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. The exams will be held for various positions in the public sector, though specific details about the positions or recruitment process have not yet been provided.

Côte d'Ivoire, a West African nation with a population of about 28 million, has been taking steps to address key issues facing the country. In 2022, the country submitted its latest National Determined Contribution (NDC), with an ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30.41%, which corresponds to a reduction of 37 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent from all sectors.

To improve the visibility of sanitation in Côte d'Ivoire's climate policies, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded a grant to the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to support the promotion of inclusive, climate-resilient urban sanitation in West Africa, with a focus on Côte d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Senegal.

As part of this project, GGGI is aiming to map GHG emissions from the sanitation sector and identify sustainable appropriate mitigation measures in Côte d'Ivoire.

Côte d'Ivoire is also one of the top 10 countries with the most malaria cases globally, accounting for 3% of all malaria cases worldwide in 2022. To tackle this issue, a team of about 8,300 community health workers equipped with bikes have become key players in reducing malaria mortality among children under five by diagnosing and treating the disease earlier. The early diagnosis and treatment provided by these community health workers have led to a significant drop in malaria cases in the country.

The upcoming public service recruitment exams are part of Côte d'Ivoire's efforts to strengthen its public sector and address the various challenges facing the nation. The exams are expected to attract a large number of candidates vying for positions in the government.

As Côte d'Ivoire continues to make progress in areas such as climate action and public health, the 2024 public service recruitment exams represent an opportunity for the country to further bolster its public sector workforce and capacity to tackle key issues. The results of these exams will likely play a significant role in shaping the future of Côte d'Ivoire's public service.
