Together with the Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI), the Managing Global Governance (MGG) programme held the international conference “Training and Dialogue for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda” from 24 to 26 April in Hyderabad, India. Participants discussed the Indian experience of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in an international context. Particular focus was put on the role of the civil service and its training institutions. Plenary, panel and working group sessions dealt with a wide spectrum of related topics, including policy coherence for the SDGs, digital solutions, as well as leadership and train-the-trainer courses. The meeting also served the purpose to further develop the New York Proposal for a Programme of Action for National Schools of Public Administration and partners in the MGG network. The event attracted considerable public and political interest, documented by broad media coverage as well as the contributions of India’s Chief Economic Advisor and the Vice Chairperson of NITI Aayog, which is the premier think tank for the Government of India and co-ordinator of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in India.
