Capacity needs assessment of government institutions to implement the 2030 Agenda and identification of priority areas for capacity development in the Asia and Pacific region and Eastern Africa
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by all Heads of State and Government at the United Nations in September 2015 (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld), with 17 ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core.

The present Survey aims to assess public institutions’ approaches, priorities and needs in implementing the SDGs. It will help gather information on steps taken by countries to adapt the SDGs to national contexts, develop policies and action plans, mobilize and adapt their institutions, engage civil society, private sector, scientific community and people, as well as establish the framework for reviewing progress in the implementation of the SDGs.

It will be used in analyzing the progress in the implementation of the SDGs at international level, as well as for developing the training and capacity development work of UNPOG working in cooperation with other international and regional organizations and UN Country Teams.

The Survey is addressed to developing countries in Asia and the Pacific and Eastern African region. It is intended for Governments but the engagement of UN country teams is greatly welcomed. The questionnaire was prepared with guidance from the Division for Public Administration and Development Management, Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DPADM/DESA). The mission of DPADM/UNDESA is to assist the Member States in fostering effective, efficient, transparent, accountable, innovative and people-centred public governance, administration and services for sustainable development. UNPOG, as a subsidiary project office of DPADM since 2006, is mandated to support the strengthening of the capacities of public administration to translate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into institutional arrangements, strategies and programmes at country-level.

The outcome of the assessment will provide an overview of progress thus far in SDGs integration in national development planning and institutional arrangements as well as of capacity needs and priorities of government institutions in developing countries of the Asia and Pacific region and Eastern Africa to implement the 2030 Agenda.

The survey may need the feedback of several institutions. Please feel free to provide answers from multiple sources and provide answers only to the questions you feel you know about. For any questions, please contact suh@un.org.
