Department of Economic and Social Affairs Public Institutions


the General Assembly of the United Nations, in its resolution 50/225 of 1 May 1996, encouraged exchanges of experiences in public administration and development in order to promote better understanding and enhance international cooperation in this field, including through South-South and interregional cooperation. The Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations was subsequently entrusted to develop and implement the programme “United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN)" (originally referred to as the United Nations Online Network in Public Administration and Finance).


UNPAN is designed to help countries, especially developing countries and countries in economic transition, to respond to the challenges that governments face in achieving their national sustainable development and the internationally agreed development goals including the Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals.
