The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through its Project Office on Governance (UNPOG) of the Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) is organizing Workshop 7 on "Strengthening Public Institutions for Climate Action" during the 2024 United Nations Public Service Forum (UNPSF) from 24 - 26 June 2024 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. 
Climate change is the defining issue of our time, and we are at a critical moment. It intensifies heatwaves, droughts, flooding, wildfires and famines while threatening food production, submerging low-lying countries and cities as sea levels rise due to melting glaciers and increasingly extreme weather.
Tackling climate change demands a paradigm shift in mitigation and adaptation measures, financing, institutional arrangements, and coordination across national, regional, and local levels. Frontier technologies and digital transformation, alongside strategic foresight, have emerged as powerful catalysts to facilitate this shift, fostering collaboration, transparency, and data-driven decision-making across government at all levels.
This hands-on workshop aims to support participating countries in identifying transformative actions that contribute to building strong public institutions at all levels for climate action and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) implementation, including through empowering sub-national/ local government in their efforts to localize climate action efforts. Additionally, the workshop aims to equip public institutions at all levels with tools to effectively address climate change through improved multilevel governance practices, innovative solutions, and strategic foresight. The workshop also aims to explore digital solutions and innovative forward-looking strategies to urgently identify key opportunities, gaps and challenges in addressing climate change.
Registration: By invitation only.
