Capacity Building Workshop on New Approaches to e-Government for SDG Implementation

 

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG), in collaboration with the D-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation, organized a capacity-building workshop on new approaches to e-government for SDG implementation. The objective of the workshop was to raise awareness on innovative approaches in e-government policies and implementation strategies and increase participants' capacities on how to use them for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal.  Innovation and continuous transformation in the area of ICTs are indeed critical for improving efficiency and effectiveness of public sector interventions and achieving the SDGs. During the workshop, a training toolkit on Innovation and Digital Government for Public Service Delivery was also presented.

The training toolkit is a set of comprehensive training materials aimed at strengthening the capacities of government officials to promote innovation and digital government for SDG implementation. The training toolkit is part of the Curriculum on Governance of the Sustainable Development recently launched by UN DESA/DPIDG. The Curriculum on Governance for the Sustainable Development Goals aims to provide a holistic and integrated framework for capacity development in the area of governance and public institutions.
