Beirut, Lebanon

The United Nations has begun accepting nominations for the 2017 UN Public Service Awards (UNPSA).
 
The deadline for receiving nominations for the UNPSA is 28 February 2017.
 
The annual UNPSA was launched in 2003 in order to promote and support excellent innovations in public service delivery worldwide. In 2016, the UNPSA was reviewed and aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs.
 
Winners of the 2017 UNPSA will be awarded during UN Public Service Forum to be held on 22-23 June in the Hague, Netherlands, entitled “The Future is Now: Accelerating Public Service Innovation for Agenda 2030.”
 
The Forum is organised in honour of United Nations Public Service Day (23 June). This international day celebrates public servants’ contribution to sustainable development, and aims to encourage youth to work in public service.
