Description: The goal of the meeting is to further the thinking of the United Nations and multi-stakeholders on how e-government and PPPs could accelerate and underpin public service delivery and contribute to up-scaling MDGs implementation.

The meeting is expected to identify the major issues and trends in e-government and PPPs towards effective and efficient public service delivery and revamp MDGs implementation by reviewing existing approaches worldwide and analyzing the structural and process changes associated with PPPs and e-government development.

  • Map innovative approaches, best practices and lessons learned of e-governance/PPPs engagement for better public service and MDGs implementation and explore reasons for their success and failure.
