Fostering Innovation Amid Global Challenges: A Public Sector Perspective

The 2024 United Nations Public Service Forum and Awards Ceremony will take place in Incheon, Republic of Korea, from 24 to 26 June 2024, under the theme ‘Fostering Innovation Amid Global Challenges: A Public Sector Perspective’.

As we strive for the realisation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and navigate through increasingly fragile and uncertain conditions, institutions must actively cultivate innovation and embrace forward-thinking mindsets to effectively address both current and future challenges. Within this context, the 2024 United Nations Public Service Forum will focus on the role of fostering innovation and transformation in the public sector, with a view to enhancing the current and future capabilities of public administrations so they are readied to be more adaptive, anticipatory, agile, inclusive, and responsive in meeting development objectives amid complex global challenges.

The Forum will provide a platform for Ministers, senior level decision-makers, and working level public servants to reflect upon and develop the skills needed to devise tangible actions to foster innovation and transformation at the local and national levels.

The Forum is co-organised by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) and the Ministry of the Interior and Safety of the Republic of Korea (MOIS).

Simultaneous interpretation for the plenary sessions will be available in Korean, English and French. Simultaneous interpretation for workshops will be available in English and Korean.
