The main objective of the Symposium is to strengthen the capacities of government officials to transform their own public institutions and accelerate achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Symposium aims to reflect on how best to mobilize, organize and equip institutions and rally whole-of-government and whole-of-society approaches to promote sustainable development by taking stock of progress made in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

 

It will provide an opportunity to discuss how to promote government innovation for social inclusion of vulnerable groups, with a focus on youth, women and persons with disabilities. It will actively engage with the civil society organizations and the private sector to discuss innovative partnerships.
