Effective, accountable and inclusive institutions are essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Thus, the new 2030 Agenda recognizes that peaceful, just and inclusive societies are built based on:

  • Respect for human rights (including the right to development),
  • Effective rule of law and good governance at all levels, and
  • Transparent, effective and accountable institutions.

In the area of transformational leadership and new mindsets for the SDGs, our division aims at strengthening institutional and human resource capacities of governments for the achievement of national development objectives and the internationally agreed development agenda including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is transformational and universal. Its achievement requires fundamental changes at the individual, organizational and institutional levels. Implementing the 2030 Agenda calls for a paradigm shift in governance; how public institutions are set up and how public servants operate. Transformational leadership plays a vital role in shaping policy decisions in governments. It can guide and influence strategic decisions, priorities, and objectives for the advancement of sustainable development . Transformational leadership is critical to operating complex policy processes, managing institutional interdependencies, and steering values and incentives of stakeholders by involving them in the development process. The division focuses on assisting countries in: (i) promoting the development of public sector human resource and leadership capacities to support leadership and professionalism, as well as ethical conduct and commitment to public service among the public servants, and (ii) developing new mindsets required to implement the SDGs.
