United Nations Secretary-General's Message for 2013

The United Nations has long recognized the importance of good governance and efficient public administration.  Current global consultations on the post-2015 agenda have further underscored their centrality to all development objectives. 
United Nations Public Service Day encourages countries to celebrate the contribution of public servants to society’s progress.
Addressing today’s inter-linked challenges requires sound, forward-looking public policies and transparent, accountable governance structures that embody solidarity with the poorest and most vulnerable.
The 2013 United Nations Public Service Awards show how public services can be delivered more efficiently, innovatively and equitably.  The winners demonstrate the basic ingredients for excellence: commitment and accountability, hard work and innovation, talent and technological know-how. 
I encourage public servants around the world to work in the same spirit to help build an inclusive, prosperous and sustainable future for all.
Ban Ki-moon

United Nations Public Service Forum (24-27 June 2013)

The United Nations Public Service Forum, Day and Awards Ceremony will take place in Manama, the Kingdom of Bahrain, from 24 to 27 June 2013. Focusing on the theme of “Transformative e-Government and Innovation: Creating a Better Future for All", the Forum is organized by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) in partnership with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UN ESCWA), in collaboration with the hosting Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The United Nations Public Service Forum is a unique capacity-building global event on public governance that provides a platform to explore, discuss and learn about: (i) Emerging challenges, issues and trends in public governance; (ii) Innovative practices to address these challenges; and (iii) Capacity development strategies, approaches and tools.

Every year the Forum focuses on a specific critical area of public governance, and explores its different dimensions and components in an organic way. The Forum brings together world leaders, policy-makers, practitioners, innovators in governance, representatives of international and regional organizations, the academia, non-profit organizations and the private sector.

The Forum is uniquely positioned to benefit from the first-class innovative practices of the winners of the prestigious United Nations Public Service Awards who are recognized for their achievements on the last day of this high-level event, which also coincides with United Nations Public Service Day. The General Assembly, by its resolution A/RES/57/277, designated 23 June as the United Nations Public Service Day to "celebrate the value and virtue of service to the community".
