EGM “Transfer and Adaptation of Innovative Practices for Improved Public Service Delivery in LDCs”
Start Date: Feb 25, 2013
End Date: Feb 26, 2013
Venue: United Nations, New York
Description:

Background and Rationale

The access to and quality of public service delivery is critical to the development of any country, including in the context of implementing, the Internationally Agreed Development Goals (IADGs), particularly the MDGs. Global, regional and national commitments to sustainable development and poverty reduction require that all citizens, men and women, have equal access to quality services, including health, education, water, sanitation, shelter, and other basic services. It is Governments who are entrusted with the responsibility to deliver quality services equitably.  If they lack the capacity to do so, the attainment of the MDGs, especially in the LDCs, is unlikely.
This year, in February, UNDESA will organise an Expert Group Meeting on “Transfer and adaptation of innovative practices for improved public service delivery in LDCs”
