The Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) adopted 11 principles of effective governance at its seventeenth session. The principles, endorsed by the Economic and Social Council in its resolution 2018/12, highlight the need for pragmatic and ongoing improvements in national and local governance capabilities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The principles are designed to ensure effective, accountable and inclusive government.

Using the completed notes as a main point of reference, DESA/DPIDG is holding an online facilitated workshop on 18 February. The workshop attempts to share knowledge, raise awareness and provide a platform to connect participants with partners in other countries, the UN system and other organizations to take further concrete action-oriented activities on sound policymaking.

  2. increases understanding and awareness of the competencies and skills needed to apply the principle of sound policymaking with an emphasis on institutions at the national
  3. links participants with peer to peer learning opportunities and research networks in specific practice areas; and
  4. identifies action-oriented and concrete activities and capacity building initiatives to enhance sound policymaking that can be undertaken with the support of the UN
    system and other organizations.
