Using the principles to address common governance challenges
UN DESA uses the governance principles as a main reference point and overarching analytical framework to address common governance challenges and advance effective governance for sustainable development in response to country requests. UN DESA's work focuses on helping countries achieve sustainable development and strengthen resilience by promoting transformative change in governance and public policy as well as pragmatic governance improvements that contribute to building effective, accountable, and transparent institutions at all levels in support of the 2030 Agenda and other international agreements.
