Expert Group Meeting "2014 UN E-Government Survey: E-Government as an Enabler of Collaborative Governance"

New York
04 - 05 December, 2012

The Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) of DESA is organizing an Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on the topic "United Nations E-Government Survey: E-Government as an Enabler of Collaborative Governance".

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for discussion to allow high-level world-wide experts to (a) exchange views on emerging trends and issues related to the thematic areas of 2014 UN E-Government Survey, with reference to the overall UN development agenda, (b) review and examine the Survey┐s methodology, as well as (c) review and update the questionnaire. The experts will provide advice and recommendations on how to integrate these issues into the next edition of the UN e-Government Survey, which is a flagship publication of DESA.

Indeed, this publication is among the top ten most viewed publications among over four hundred produced every year by the Department; has been translated in Chinese and is currently being translated in Arabic and Spanish. The Survey provides unique, global and up-to-date information about the e-government ranking of 193 Member States and highlights major emerging trends and issues, as well as good practices in the area of e-government development across the globe.

The Survey has become a major reference publication for decision-makers world-wide, and for numerous international and regional institutions working in this area. It is an important tool for capacity-building as Governments utilize the Survey in order to gauge information about their ranking and, based on their own needs, request DESA┐s advisory services to support them in further building their own capacity. As a result of DESA┐s capacity building activities in this area, several Governments have been able to perform better and deliver services in more efficient, accountable, transparent and citizen-centric manner, thus progressing towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.

According to the UN e-Government Survey 2012, progress in online service delivery continues in most countries around the world. The United Nations E-Government Survey 2012 finds that many have put in place e-government initiatives and information and communication technologies applications for the people to further enhance public sector efficiencies and streamline governance systems to support sustainable development. Among the e-government leaders, innovative technology solutions have gained special recognition as the means to revitalize lagging economic and social sectors.
