DPADM and UNIFEM Join Forces to establish and manage a New United Nations Public Service Awards Category on Gender-Responsive Public Service Delivery

UNDESA/DPADM and the United Nations Development Fund for Women - UNIFEM (part of UN Women) have signed an agreement to collaborate and jointly manage a new United Nations Public Service Awards (UNPSA) category on "Promoting gender responsive delivery of public services". An efficient public administration that delivers services for all citizens is central to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It is equally apparent that the achievement of gender equality remains a great challenge in many parts of the world and negatively impacts progress towards all of the MDGs. Women’s enjoyment of rights, resources, and voice are shaped by governance systems. While there has been notable progress in ratifying conventions and improving legislation, adequate design and delivery of gender-responsive services have lagged behind.  For this reason, we hope that this award will serve as a token of recognition for all those public servants who are working untiringly to improve the delivery of services to women and serve to spur others to learn  and replicate from their good examples.
