The Sustainable Development Department will be awarded the UN DESA prize for innovation and excellence in public service

The Government's Department for Sustainable Development will receive the UN DESA award for innovation and excellence in public service at the 2021 United Nations Public Service Forum (UNPSF) gala.

Each year, during an awards ceremony, UN DESA recognizes excellence in public service by rewarding the creative achievements and contributions of public institutions to a more efficient and responsive public administration in countries around the world. Of the 193 UN member states and 63 countries listed in the category "Increasing the efficiency of public institutions to meet the Sustainable Development Goals," the Department for Sustainable Development was named the winner, its innovation and excellence in serving the public interest and its significant contribution to improving public administration in Romania being thus acknowledged.

"We have dared to believe in a Sustainable Romania and this is how all our efforts in the last 4 years in the field of sustainable development are officially recognized by the most important international organization in the world. Our path to a sustainable future does not stop here. We are even more motivated to promote the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda in Romania. The fruitfulness of all the achievements of the Department depends on the efforts of each of us, in daily life. Only through combined efforts, conscious and sustainable choices can we reach the prosperity we desire for the future generations," stated State Advisor László Borbély, coordinator of the Department for Sustainable Development.

This year, the United Public Service Forum 2021 will be held in Dubai from 13 to 15 December, under the theme “Innovating the Future Public Service: New Government Models for a New Era to Reach the Sustainable Development Goals”.

The Department for Sustainable Development was invited to participate in the awards ceremony, and also in five workshops aimed at presenting good practices and developing the skills needed to design concrete actions to accelerate progress in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals over the next decade.

State Advisor László Borbély will also represent our country at the Ministerial Roundtable where emerging issues and trends, strategies, actions and innovative approaches to providing efficient services and transforming institutions will be discussed.

The Department for Sustainable Development will promote the award-winning initiative and Romania's actions to involve each segment of society in implementing the 2030 Agenda in Romania in a holistic manner, as part of a presentation stand, during the three days of the forum.
