The expert group meeting on the “Preparatory Process for the United Nations E-Government Survey 2018” held from 10 to 11 May 2017 at the UNHQ covered a wide range of topics such as the comparative analysis of global and regional e-government assessments; e-government in the context of the SDGs; overview of current Survey methodology in relation to the principles of 2030 Agenda; emerging technology trends in the public sector, and innovations in support of sustainable development. The outcomes and recommendations included expanding e-government benchmarking to the local level especially to assess the evolution of smart cities, further evaluating mobile services in light of ubiquity of mobile technologies, piloting user satisfaction on e-government services in response to SDG indicator 16.6.2 (Proportion of the population satisfied with their last experience of public services) and others on presentation of the results and further extending existing e-government country profiles. In addition to the experts, the meeting was attended by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), World Bank, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UN University (UNU), UN Development Programme (UNDP) and International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

Symposium on Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SAMOA Pathway in Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

Many small island developing States (SIDS) are rapidly moving ahead with the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SAMOA Pathway, Climate change and other agreements. 


It is a challenging process that requires adapting institutions and calls for a whole-of-society effort 

  • It is important to sensitize all levels of the government and to mobilize and train public servants on SDGs implementation. The UN can support this by working with public administration schools. 
  • Disaster risk management and building resilience should be at the centre of implementation efforts 
  • Access to concessional financial resources should be improved notably after natural disasters. 
  • Harnessing ICT and mobilizing partnerships is critical for implementing the SDGs 
  • Statistical offices, ministries, parliaments, supreme audit institutions and civil society all have a role in reviewing progress towards the SDG. 
The informal communiqué emanating from the symposium will inform the meetings of the UN oceans conference, high-level political forum on sustainable development, United Nations General Assembly, ECOSOC and UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration. Click here for more information.
