DESA’s DPADM (Division for Public Administration and Development Management and Division for Sustainable Development) along with DESA’s DSD (Division for Sustainable Development) and UNIDO organized an expert meeting on “Readying institutions for integrated approaches to the 2030 Agenda “from 14 to 16 December 2016 at UNIDO Headquarters in Vienna. The meeting reflected on the interlinkages among the seven SDGs to be reviewed by the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July 2017 (poverty, hunger, health, gender, infrastructure, oceans and means of implementation) and how public institutions and policies can best deal with these interlinkages.
The key message was that taking full account of the interlinkages among the SDG areas will help accelerate implementation of the SDGs. Participants considered that institutions need to undertake a number of actions to promote integrated implementation such as ensuring continued leadership at the highest level but also promoting joint policy development at the working level and clarifying institutional mandates and opportunities for collaboration.
The outcome of the meeting will contribute to the thematic review of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July 2017, and inform the work of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration.
