message from head of UNFOG

The United Nations Project Office on Governance was established in 2006 as a project office of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) with the principal mission of strengthening the capacities of public administration in developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. Since its inception, UNPOG has conducted innovative research and capacity building activities and disseminated global and local best practices on participatory, transparent and effective governance.

From June 2016, in response to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UNPOG shall focus on strengthening the capacities of public administration to translate SDGs and other internationally agreed goals into institutional arrangements, strategies and programmes at country level. Its geographic coverage will also include Eastern Africa, beyond Asia and the Pacific.

UNPOG endeavors to be the global hub for good governance, a platform where meaningful and productive discussions are made and best practices are disseminated. Your participation and interest will be essential to turning our vision into a reality.

Thank you.
