The EGM will reflect on global and regional perspectives on digital/e-government development and suggest improvements to survey methodology, if needed, to better measure e-government and how it contributes to the implementation of the SDGs. Given the overarching umbrella of leaving no one behind (LNOB) of 2030 Agenda and supporting digital inclusion, the EGM will particularly discuss possible improvements in the methodology for measuring e-participation (the E-Participation Index (EPI)).
