New York
16 - 17 March, 2015

The Expert Group Meeting (EGM) entitled ôUnited Nations E-Government Survey 2016: E-Government for Sustainable Developmentö, is organized by UN DESAĺs Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM).

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for experts to (a) discuss and exchange views on emerging issues and trends related to e-government for sustainable development, (b) discuss the outline and issues for possible inclusion in the United Nations E-Government Survey 2016, with a view to aligning it to the overall United Nations post-2015 development agenda (c) review and examine the Surveyĺs methodology, as well as (d) review and update the Surveyĺs questionnaire.

The experts will provide advice and recommendations on how to integrate these issues into the next edition of the United Nations E-Government Survey and will take into account the feedback and suggestions received from Member States during consultative meetings organized by the Division prior to the EGM. It is the first time that these meetings are being organized by DPADM, in collaboration with a number of regional hosts, in order to allow for a more inclusive, open and participatory approach in the design of the Survey.

Consultative meetings already took place in Colombia (5 December 2014), Bahrain (29 January 2015), Kazakhstan (12 and 13 February 2015), the Republic of Korea (9-10 February), Belgium (17-18 February 2015) and Estonia (19-20 February 2015), while preparations are under way for meetings to be held in Morocco (4 March 2015). Through a participatory approach that includes discussions at round tables and in plenary sessions, participants are invited to respond to a set of questions, so as to provide concrete suggestions and feed-back on the theme and methodology of the UN E-Government Survey 2016.
