In September 2015 the United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a vision for transforming the world by ending poverty, transforming societies and protecting the planet. At the heart of the 2030 Agenda are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets covering areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet - people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership. From reaching social and economic equality to combating climate change, the SDGs cannot be achieved without determined and sustained efforts from public institutions. More than ever, continuous innovation and integrated approaches are needed. The critical role of public institutions in realizing the SDGs is highlighted in the Goal 16 which is calls for building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.This Compendium of Innovative Practices in Public Governance and Administration for Sustainable Development explores three shifts in government-society interactions that have had significant impact on public administration and public service. These are the (i) demand for more people-centered governance, (ii) greater use of ICT technologies in public sector, and (iii) demand for high-quality human resources in public sector to deal with increasingly more complex development imperatives. The Compendium contains both substantive analysis and case studies on these three important themes. It can function as a useful reference and illustrate that promoting innovative practices in public service delivery is vital for achieving the sustainable development goals and leaving no one behind.

Public Governance and Public Administration for the Future

On 25 September 2015 the United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sharing a vision of transforming the world in three main ways -- ending poverty, transforming all lives, and protecting the planet. By placing people and planet at the center of new agenda, they reinforced the importance of creating conditions for dignified life free of hunger, poverty, job insecurity and inequality and for addressing increasingly complex and pressing environmental issues. A common framework to achieve this vision is captured in ‘five Ps’-- people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership, to which the Member States agreed to commit 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 targets, leaving no one behind.
