The UN E-Government Survey serves as a tool for decision-makers to identify their areas of strength and challenges. The Survey assesses the e-government readiness of the 193 Member States of the UN according to a quantitative composite index of e-readiness based on website assessment, telecommunication infrastructure, and human resource endowment. ICTs can help reinvent government in such a way that existing institutional arrangements can be restructured and new innovative arrangements can flourish, paving the way for a collaborative, effective, inclusive, transparent and accountable government, which is critical for sustainable development. DPADM, as a global hub for innovation in public governance, promotes knowledge sharing of innovative approaches and practices in public management, particularly in the area of e-government.



Bridging the digital divide

Today 1.2 billion people of the world living in extreme poverty account for only one per cent of the consumption as compared to the richest 1 billion people which consume 72 per cent. The United Nations Secretary-General’s High Level Panel on Post-2015 Development has called for a new agenda which “must tackle the causes of poverty, exclusion and inequality. It must connect people in rural and urban areas to the modern economy through quality infrastructure–electricity, irrigation, roads, ports and telecommunications.” In outlining his vision for the way forward on Post-2015, the United Nations Secretary-General stated that “in order to leave no one behind and bring everyone forward, actions are needed to promote equality of opportunity.”
