The United Nations is now accepting nominations for the 2018 United Nations Public Service Awards.

The Awards promote and reward innovation and excellence in public services in support of the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the principle of leaving no one behind. This forms the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Nominations for the Awards are invited in three categories:

1) Reaching the poorest and most vulnerable through inclusive services and partnerships;

2) Making institutions inclusive and ensuring participation in decision-making; and

3) Promoting gender responsive public services to achieve the SDGs.

The Awards are open to all public-sector institutions at the national, state and local levels. The nominations for the Award must present innovative initiatives that contribute to improved public service delivery and may inspire similar initiatives around the world.
