At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, a global consensus was reached that to achieve our sustainable development goals we need institutions at all levels that are effective, transparent, accountable and democratic. E-government holds tremendous potential to improve the way that governments deliver public services and enhance broad stakeholder involvement in public service.

The 2014 edition of the United Nations E-Government Survey, coming on the heels of a ten-year period of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) action line implementation, asserts that information and communication technologies are potent enablers of the effective, transparent and accountable institutions envisaged by world leaders at Rio. Countries in all regions of the world and at all levels of development continue to make significant investments in public sector ICT for these reasons. Such efforts are vital to achieving broad public participation in decision-making, enhancing access to information and removing barriers to public service—all essential if we are to assure a future of equitable economic growth and sustainable development that are free of poverty and hunger.
