The Role of Public Procurement in Achieving the SDGs

Organisation: UNDP, UN Women, CoST, OGP, OCP. Location: Virtual

The ASEAN Regional Dialogue on The Role of Public Procurement in Achieving the SDGs is organized by UNDP through its “FairBiz – Promoting Fair Business environment in ASEAN” project, in partnership with UN Women, Open Government Partnership, Infrastructure Transparency Initiative (COST), Open Contracting Partnership, and with the support of the UK Government, ASEAN Economic Reform Programme. The Regional Dialogue will bring together government representatives from the region, private sector leaders, and civil society representatives interested in learning more about and/or implementing the sustainable public procurement agenda via the SDGs, integrity, and value-for-money lenses.

OCP is specifically co-organizing “The Do’s and Don’ts of Managing Risks in Procurement” where we will look at the different strategies and approaches used by the government, civil society, and the private sector within the Asia Pacific region. We will also highlight how certain approaches such as OCP’s accelerator program and OGP’s co-creation process have enabled countries to manage procurement risks by weaving in transparency and accountability mechanisms that are helpful during times of crisis.

We look forward to your participation. Click the link below to register.
