Venue: Room XXVI, Palais des Nations, Geneva
Description:

Expert Group Meeting

Organized by

United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs

in Partnership with

 “Governance, Public Administration and Information & Communication Technologies for Post-2015 Development”

 

Room XXVI, E Building

Palais des Nations

       Geneva, 3 to 5 July 2013    

 The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) in partnership with the Center for Electronic Governance at United Nations University IIST (UNU) is organizing the Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on Governance, Public Administration and Information & Communication Technologies for Post-2015 Development during the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) High Level Segment Meetings. 

The objective of the Meeting is to further the thinking of the United Nations on governance as an enabler for Post-2015 development by exploring and identifying issues and challenges facing both governments and citizens in their quest towards sustainable development. The EGM will invite experts in a variety of disciplines to explore state-of-the-art approaches to governance and public administration which, underpinned by effective, transparent, accountable and responsive institutions, can contribute to the integrated governance framework for pursuing sustainable development by the world community. In doing so, the EGM will also focus on how technology-enabled governance can be leveraged by the public sector to add value to the functioning of institutions for the achievement of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. 

The Meeting will review governance and public administration paradigms, and assess conceptual and methodological approaches to better understand the key dimensions of governance to support sustainable development during the Post-2015 era. The EGM discussions will pave the way forward for integrating governance and technology-enabled governance in the discussions of the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda, and inform the work of UNDESA on the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda.
