Summary

Together with the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) of the Republic of Korea, the UNDP Seoul Policy Centre (USPC) produced a Resource Book for Practitioners, combined with a three-part Video Presentation, which detail Seoul’s Clean Construction System (CCS).

The system won the prestigious UN Public Service award in 2013 in recognition of its innovation and potential for application in other countries. Together with Seoul, USPC shared this system in December 2015 with more than 70 participants from 20 countries, and is now providing follow-up advisory and technical support to countries such as Ukraine, Jordan, Uganda, Vietnam, and Thailand for county-level application of this system and the lessons learnt.

The publication and accompanying video presentations share how Seoul’s CCS has increased efficiency, accountability and transparency of Seoul’s public construction management through full digitalization of its business process and real-time public disclosure of information on its construction projects.

This is a multilingual publication, available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese, Thai, Ukrainian and Russian (forthcoming).

Part 1 of the video presentation (20 minutes) summarizes the key contents of the Clean Construction System as well as key policy lessons, while Parts 2 and 3 provide further details from the Resource Book.
