In collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Korea, UN DESA organized a Symposium from 5 to 8 December 2017 on “Building Effective, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions and Public Administration for Advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. The Symposium aimed at strengthening public governance for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and enabling governments to respond to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in innovative ways, drawing from the strategies that different countries are implementing and the related successes, challenges and difficulties. The Symposium allowed participants to identify good practices and ideas and enhanced cooperation between countries. This included discussions on actions for localizing the SDGs, improving public services delivery, engaging all stakeholders, particularly civil society organizations and the private sector, enhancing means of implementation, and adapting plans and policies to the SDGs.
