United Nations Public Service Day
Taking its lead from the 2022 theme of the United Nations High-level Political Forum (HLPF), the main body for reviewing implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, the 2022 UN Public Service Day commemoration, celebrated this year on 22 June, will focus on the role of public institutions and public servants in building back better from COVID-19 as they work to meet the 2030 deadline for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.
During the UN Public Service Day event, stakeholders will gather to discuss the role that various forms of partnerships can and should play in building back better from COVID-19 and in meeting the SDGs. It will do so through the lens of SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions), and in particular target 16.6 - enhancing the effectiveness, transparency, accountability of public institutions. The event will place a focus on the role of innovation in creating and sustaining partnerships for effective public service delivery.
