Every year the Forum focuses on a specific critical area of public governance and explores its different dimensions and components in a holistic 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 during the Forum, which also coincides with United Nations Public Service Day and Africa Public Service Day.
