Expert Group Meeting on the UN E-Government Survey 2022 and the SG's Our Common Agenda

Co-organized by United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV)

4 -7 October 2022, Guimarães, Portugal
Venue: UNU-EGOV Offices in Guimarães, Portugal


The Expert Group Meeting (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. 


The purpose of this EGM is to provide a platform for digital government experts from the UN entities, international organizations, private sector and academia to share their perspectives on the following: contemporary and future trends in digital public services, e-government technologies, public officials' interaction with the public, etc. This includes discussions on how to achieve the overarching umbrella of leaving no one behind (LNOB) of the 2030 Agenda, taking into account the impact of new technologies in how digital government could bridge the digital divide and minimize social and economic inequalities.


This exchange of views and reflections will be used to update the current methodological approach of the Survey, and to ensure that the Survey contributes to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The experts will provide advice and recommendations on whether and how to adjust the focus, approach and methodology of the 2022 and future editions of the United Nations E-Government Survey.
