About Us

The United Nations Project Office on Governance was established in 2006 as a subsidiary organization of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) with the principal mission of assisting Member States improve their governance capacity. Since its inception, UNPOG has conducted innovative research and capacity-building activities and disseminated global and local best practices on participatory, transparent and effective democratic governance.

As a process by which all stakeholders such as government, private sector and civil society collaborate to effectively address various needs of multifaceted modern society, governance will continue to have a crucial role in promoting development, especially in this era of globalization and innovation. The UN Project Office on Governance will spare no effort to foster good governance policies among the United Nations Member States.

Our office endeavors to be the Global Hub for Good Governance, a platform where meaningful and productive discussions are made and best practices are disseminated. Your participation and interest will be essential to turning our vision into a reality.
