Transfer/Adaptation of Innovative Practices for Improved Public Service Delivery in LDCs
Start Date: Mar 17, 2014
End Date: Mar 19, 2014
Venue: UNECA Conference Center, Addis Ababa

On the understanding that it will take capable leadership and public servants to strengthen public administration capacity to secure effective delivery of efficient public services in an equitable manner, in the beginning of 2013 the Division for Public Administration and Development Management of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DPADM/UNDESA) started the implementation of Project entitled “Strengthening capacities of the public sector in least developed countries (LDCs) to deliver quality services equitably through the transfer and adaptation of innovative practices”. The Project envisions, among other activities, two Capacity Building Workshops for LDCs to develop the requisite knowledge and skills about approaches and methodologies that are appropriate for effective and smooth adaptation and implementation of successful service delivery practices in their local contexts. During the Workshops, the participants will, based on the specific country needs as well as the innovations contained in the United Nations Compendium of Best Practices, identify specific MDG-related areas of service delivery and discuss the best ways to bring innovative solutions designed and implemented by source Governments to governance problems of Governments and local authorities of those LDCs that are looking to adapt such solutions in the same or similar areas.

This is one of the two capacity building Workshops which is organized by DPADM/UNDESA with support from the hosting Government of Ethiopia in cooperation with UNDP, UN-HABITAT and UN-WOMEN.
