This event will launch the 2020 edition of the United Nations E-Government Survey. It will include an in-depth presentation of the Survey data and results, followed by expert reflections on the findings. The world we live in has changed so much since the last edition of the Survey, released two years ago – has digital governance kept up with the pace? Is it well-equipped to face the challenges that are ahead?
As the only publication to benchmark the e-government readiness of all 193 United Nations Member States, prepared over a two-year period with inputs from governments, subject-matter experts and more than 200 researchers, and building on 20 years of measuring and analysis, the Survey is truly one of a kind. Please join United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) to reflect on where we’re at globally and locally in terms of digital development – an important step to work on closing digital divides.
