The Expert Group Meeting on “Enhancing Innovation to Build Resilient and Responsive Public Administration to Support the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – an SDGs Mid-Term Review Perspective” is organized by the Public Service Innovation Branch (PISB), Division of Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG), the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA). It will take place on 7-8 September 2023 at the Conference Room B, United Nations, New York.


This Expert Group Meeting comes at a challenging time, as an opportunity to discuss the public service delivery at the intersection of innovation, public sector rebuilding and multiple crisis through the lenses of mid-term review of SDGs.  


It will aim to provide a platform to discuss the adaptive responses to continuity and innovation in public service delivery, lessons learnt, but more importantly to discuss the way forward in a world where the role of governance will be crucial in our collective efforts to rebuild our societies at a time of intersected crisis and ensure that we remain on track for the implementation of SDGs. 


This Expert Group Meeting will enhance our understanding of challenges and opportunities in building political leadership and institutional capacities, enhancing regulatory frameworks and inclusive processes, ensuring responsible technology diffusion and technology uptake, strengthening public financial management systems, and rebuilding a public administration work force through enhanced innovative approaches and technologies.
