The training is jointly organized by UN DESA/DPIDG  together with the SIDS Unit of UN DESA/DSDG, in collaboration with the Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).  This training is being organized in response to a request from Caribbean Member States.  It is based on a Toolkit on “Innovation and Digital Government for Public Service Delivery", which is part of the Curriculum on Governance for the Sustainable Development Goals. The training aims at pilot testing the toolkit with the goal of developing the capacities of public servants to respond to the challenges of delivering public services through institutional, organizational, process and conceptual innovations. The training will focus on the various dimensions of digital government transformation (Governance, Leadership, Strategy, Legal Framework, Technology, Professional and Workforce Development), public value, systems thinking, innovation labs, action planning and road mapping. The training will include a digital transformation capability assessment and strong interaction between government representatives.  Strategies for innovation and digital change will be discussed at individual, institutional, organizational, and societal levels.
