The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) and with the support of its project office on governance (UNPOG) and DSDG, and in collaboration with the Department of Strategic Policy, Planning and Aid Coordination (DSPPAC) within the Prime Minister’s office of the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu, the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office and UNDP, is organizing a Workshop on “Enhancing National to Local Institutional Coordination and Monitoring Mechanisms for NSDP/SDG Implementation in Vanuatu”, which will be held from 20 to 22 July 2022.
The objective of this workshop is to convene Key Provincial Officials and officials in ministries in Port Vila to develop recommendations for improving national and local coordination in delivering the NSDP and SDGs in collaboration with national government officials and international experts.
The workshop will provide a platform for national and Provincial Administrators to develop a better understanding of the strategies and approaches to national and local coordination in promoting the progress towards the delivery of SDGs. The workshop will also provide a good opportunity for them to present their difficulties to the national authorities, particularly the DSPPAC, in engagement for consultation with them on developing effective consultation and coordination mechanisms. It will also provide an opportunity for them to learn from the innovative country practices shared during a series of training events under UNDESA’s Development Account Project 1819G.
The primary audience for the workshop will be the Heads of Planning and Finance from each of the (6) provinces and (3) municipalities and one other staff nominated by the Department of Local authorities. However, key National Government officials and development partners involved with projects at the provincial level will also be invited.
Registration: By invitation only.
