the World Public Sector Report 2023

Dear All,

Join us for the launch of the World Public Sector Report 2023, “Transforming institutions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals after the pandemic”.

The World Public Sector Report 2023, published by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government, aims to draw attention to institutional change as a key component of the societal transformations required to realize the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The report examines the role that national institutional and governance innovations and changes that emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic can play in advancing progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. While the pandemic and its consequences have made the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) more difficult to achieve in the short and medium terms, the pandemic also sparked rapid innovation in government institutions and public administration. Examples of positive changes were observed in the internal workings of public institutions and in the way they interact with one another and broader society, including through public service delivery. Capitalizing on such positive changes would be important for the future.

The webinar will comprise a presentation of the report, comments by public administration experts, and discussion.
