WGS 2018: Governments Of The Future Must Work Smartly With Innovation And Technology

Government and governance are of critical importance when it comes to enabling innovation through smart policy-making. This was the main message from Achim Steiner, Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, UNDP, in his talk on ‘Government of the Future – Innovation and Technology’ on day two of the ongoing World Government Summit, WGS 2018, in Dubai. The Brazilian, who is a renowned global leader on sustainable development, international cooperation and global diplomacy for nearly three decades, said, "When we discuss government of the future, one might be tempted to say that government will be less central to what happens next in terms of technology and entrepreneurial vision. Indeed, there are times when the government stands in the way of innovation, and public policy hinders progress. However, it is up to governments to implement policies that ensure inclusiveness and that technology contributes to solving problems rather than amplifying them by leaving people behind."

Government-Adopted Disruptive Solutions Accelerate Service Innovation

When the government puts its weight behind an innovation, the impact is felt by vast swathes of the population and changes lives for the better. From Indonesia to India, Denmark, Mexico, the US, and the UAE, proactive decision-makers in what some call the golden age of government innovation are changing the way the world works. OECD’s Observatory of Public Sector Innovation calls this trend “the new normal”. Using innovation, the bureaucracy in Bangladesh can distribute welfare payments via mobile phones, bypassing the requirement to visit bank branches in a largely cash-driven environment. In Pakistan, dengue-eradication receives a shot in the arm when employees responsible for spraying insecticide are given apps that allow them to geo-tag the affected and sprayed areas, increasing efficiency and facilitating a planned response.

UAE well ahead of curve in making happiness reality

Happiness is a subject taken very seriously in the modern world. On the global level, a movement to consider, evaluate and measure happiness and well-being among individuals and societies has gained increasing momentum in recent years. In 2011, the General Assembly of the United Nations unanimously adopted a resolution (A/RES/65/309) that calls for viewing happiness as a holistic approach to development, and for considering additional measures that better capture the importance of the pursuit of happiness and wellbeing in development with a view to guiding public policies. In the same year, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) introduced its own ‘Better Life’ Index, an attempt to bring together internationally comparable measures of well-being. The study had 11 dimensions, including ‘life satisfaction’ or level of happiness, and factored in work-life balance.
