  • 2016•07•07     New York

    The Division For Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM), part of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), assists UN Member States in fostering effective, efficient, transparent, accountable, innovative and citizen-centred public governance, administration and services for sustainable development. One of the major publications produced by UNDESA/DPADM is the series of United Nations e-Government Surveys which track the progress of the Member States in the use of digital technology in public administration and governance.

    Prof. Tomasz Janowski, the Head of UNU-EGOV, visited UNDESA/DPADM on 29 June 2016 to discuss the relevance of Digital Government for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, what Digital Government requirements are facing the UN System and Member States, to what extent are these requirements fulfilled, and the alignment between the United Nations e-Government Surveys and the 2030 Agenda.
