This publication is based on highlights of the discussion held during the 12th Session of the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA), in 2013, on “The Role of Responsive and Accountable Public Governance in achieving the MDGs and the Post-2015 Development Agenda,” which observed that responsive and accountable governance, including effective, responsive and accountable public administration, is key in accelerating the progress on the MDGs and in the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda. It also encompasses research and analysis of the United Nations Public Administration Country Studies (UNPACS) on themes such as codes of conduct, citizen engagement (in terms of its oversight role), ICTs in the work of e-government, and citizen engagement for public policy definition and development management planning.



Governance, a priority for development

In August 2015, United Nations Member States reached an agreement on the outcome document that will constitute the Agenda for Sustainable Development—the development framework beyond the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) target date. At the request of General Assembly, the Secretary-General gave a report that synthesized the full range of inputs as a contribution to the intergovernmental negotiations in the lead up to the Summit on Sustainable Development to be held in New York in September 2015.
