Welcome to the e-Library of the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). This portable e-Library contains all the latest DPADM publications in "flip book" format. The e-Library also includes an extensive archive of DPADM's past publications and links to its websites and online training courses. Be sure to also visit the "DPADM Publications" page to get the latest publication news, including updates on the forthcoming United Nations E-Government Survey 2012.
Whether a developing or developed country, we often find that there is much to learn from each other, especially in connecting lessons learned with practices. This e-Library embraces the notion of sharing and ease of access to the latest developments of public policies, governance focusing particularly on institutional and human resources development in government with a special attention to countries in post-conflict and post-disaster situations, e-government and e-governance development, citizens' engagement, transparency and accountability in managing internationally agreed development agenda, including the MDGs to facilitate innovation, improvement of public service delivery and against corruption.
I hope you find this e-Library stimulating and useful as a research and reference tool for sharing and learning.
Ms. Haiyan Qian
