UNDESA participates in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum 2017
UNDESA/DPADM organized two events at the annual World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum. The annual Forum is a global multi-stakeholder platform facilitating the implementation of the WSIS Action Lines for advancing sustainable development.

UNDESA/DPADM sessions addressed the role of private sector in mobilizing ICTs for SDGs; and the role of digital government in eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity. The sessions underscored the important role of ICT for realizing the SDGs and the role of government, private sector and other actors in realizing these promises. More details about these sessions including presentations and speakers can be found below.

Also during this year’s Forum, UNDESA/DPADM, together with ITU, briefed on the launch of a task group on ICT for SDGs as part of the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development. The objective of the task group is to propose a thematic list of ICT indicators that could be used to measure ICT availability and use in sectors relevant to the SDGs that are not covered in the SDG indicators framework.

UNDESA/DPADM also participated in the high-level policy session on the WSIS action lines and 2030 Agenda as WSIS action line facilitator. Click here for more information.

24th UN/INTOSAI Symposium on "Digitalization, Open Data and Data Mmining
On 31 May-2 June 2017, DESA/DPADM and the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) jointly organised a symposium on the contribution of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) to SDG follow-up and review and digitalization, open data and data mining. The meeting showed that INTOSAI and its member SAIs are responding to the 2030 Agenda. INTOSAI has developed four approaches for SAIs’ to contribute to the SDGs (namely: assessing national readiness for implementing and reporting progress on the SDGs; undertaking performance audits of programs that contribute to the SDGs; assessing and supporting the implementation of Goal 16, and being models of transparency and accountability). The meeting discussed several initiatives under these approaches. It was also felt that aggregating information from SAIs’ audit work under each approach could help inform the SDG review in the High-Level Political Forum for Sustainable Development (HLPF). INTOSAI and its members will continue working to develop implementation frameworks to produce high-quality SDG-related information. The meeting also adopted a set of conclusions and recommendations.

Symposium on Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SAMOA Pathway in Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

Many small island developing States (SIDS) are rapidly moving ahead with the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SAMOA Pathway, Climate change and other agreements. 


It is a challenging process that requires adapting institutions and calls for a whole-of-society effort 

  • It is important to sensitize all levels of the government and to mobilize and train public servants on SDGs implementation. The UN can support this by working with public administration schools. 
  • Disaster risk management and building resilience should be at the centre of implementation efforts 
  • Access to concessional financial resources should be improved notably after natural disasters. 
  • Harnessing ICT and mobilizing partnerships is critical for implementing the SDGs 
  • Statistical offices, ministries, parliaments, supreme audit institutions and civil society all have a role in reviewing progress towards the SDG. 
The informal communiqué emanating from the symposium will inform the meetings of the UN oceans conference, high-level political forum on sustainable development, United Nations General Assembly, ECOSOC and UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration. Click here for more information.

Note: All UNPAN members are invited to provide input from their latest meetings.
