Morocco card rev


UN DESA’s Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) is organizing two inter-linked capacity development activities under the umbrella of “Advancing innovative and inclusive partnerships and governance in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals” as part of the 2022 International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) Conference which will take place in Rabat, Morocco on July 25-29, 2022. The IASIA Conference will focus on “Implementing and Promoting Effective Governance Principles to Leave No One, No Place Behind”. UN DESA/DPIDG will organize a capacity development workshop, which will focus on building back better from COVID-19: enhancing innovative partnerships to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. It will also organize a panel session on innovative governance for social inclusion of vulnerable groups.

The workshop will aim at building resilience and capacity of national public administrations to develop and enhance partnerships and build back better from COVID-19 to reach the SDGs, while focusing on enhancing innovation, technology and participation.

The panel session on innovative governance to leave no one behind will aim at developing capacities of public officials in countries in special situations to promote inclusive governance and engagement of vulnerable groups. The main theme of the workshop and panel are congruent with the theme of the umbrella IASIA Conference ‘Implementing and Promoting Effective Governance Principles to Leave No One, No Place Behind’.

The workshop and panel session emphasize DPIDG’s work on the 11 Principles of Effective Governance designed by UN-CEPA and endorsed/adopted by ECOSOC. While drawing on the CEPA principles, notably those on collaboration, leaving no one behind and partnerships, the workshop and panel session will also highlight the Curriculum on Governance for the SDGs and the innovative practices from the UN Public Service Awards.
