The direct beneficiaries of this Project are senior government officials working among ministries and levels of government responsible for various aspects related to the SDGs including government entities responsible for public administration, planning, local development and related institutions. Sub-national authorities, institutes of public administration and management, civil service academies and more will also take part in programme activities of the Project.
In compliance with the general guidelines from UN DESA in capacity development activities, UNPOG is shifting its approach to six countries in special situations that will be identified for targeted technical cooperation every three years until 2030.
There is a specific focus on Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries, Small Island Developing States and Middle-Income Countries in Asia and the Pacific, and Eastern Africa as well as countries in similar conditions in other regions around the world.
