#Tagging globally for sustainable development, productive industry and accountable government in UN Initiatives

By suitably #tagging their content, stakeholders can contribute it to an open domestic and global conversation on innovation for sustainable development, the economic activities and functions of government in UN Initiatives.

In a #tag2wiki step, the #tagged discourse can be curated, analysed, and shared and conflicting viewpoints can be covered in wiki sector maps and maps of the functions of government, as part of UN Initiatives's planning for inclusive and sustainable development1.



Multilateral initiatives undertaken by the UN or its specialised agencies are listed behind the "International" field for each COFOG class (Education, Health,…, Public Order and Safety), or in the list at the bottom of the page.
