During the Study Visit, UNPOG introduced i) the mandate of the office, ii) our common challenges due to COVID-19, climate change and conflict, iii) promoting effective governance as an enabler to address multiple challenges, iv) DESA/DPIDG’s Curriculum on Governance for the SDGs, and v) advancing digital transformation for realizing the 2030 Agenda.
