Public Service 2030
Making the Sustainable Development Goals happen
The UNDP’s commitment to public service excellence lies in a strong belief that those states which invest in their administrative capacities are more likely to deliver on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With this end in mind, the UNDP Global Centre for Public Service Excellence (GCPSE) published 17 case studies, with each one focused on a different SDG.
The SDGs ultimately aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and provide a prosperous future for all. The case studies feature 17 different countries, detailing the progress made in each of the 17 SDGs (one Goal per country). In doing so, the cases illustrate the critical role the public sector played in making progress on the SDG in each country.
Personal accounts by individuals from countries including Cambodia, Libya, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, and others provide inspiring examples of how public service excellence can transform lives. Collaborative efforts between the public sector, private sector, and civil society in many of the stories are timely reminders that close partnerships will be required to achieve the Agenda 2030.
