Plenary Discussion: How is innovation shaping the government of the future?
Friday, 23 June 2017
Ministerial Conversation: From The Hague onwards: How do we accelerate innovations in public service?
United Nations Public Service Award Ceremony
There was a key message that, at a time of great change, government needs to work differently, harnesses the enormous potential of public administration and mobilize all actors towards a more effective, inclusive and accountable governance, as envisioned by SDG 16. Synergies with the other Goals and Targets of the Agenda 2030 and actionable strategies on how to translate them into integrated and effective policies took centre stage in the discussions.
Many public institutions have been experimenting with innovative approaches in areas related to the SDGs. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a clear roadmap with measurable and adaptable targets to realize an ambitious vision.
