Interested in researching governance and public administration issues? Then apply for UNDP research grants in one of six areas
Ha Noi - UNDP Viet Nam is currently supporting and providing advice to the Government of Viet Nam on ways to implement its Public Administration Reform (PAR) programme. Part of this support includes the development of monitoring tools to capture and measure the views and experiences of citizens as users of public administrative services. UNDP has also helped to develop the Viet Nam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI).
PAPI is the largest and first-ever survey of its kind in Viet Nam. It measures the standards of governance and public administration based on citizens’ experience of interacting with government authorities and provides a bottom-up perspective.
PAPI has been implemented across all 63 provinces in Viet Nam and captures more than 13,000 individual citizens’ experiences, in a groundbreaking effort to support a more evidence-based policy making process.
UNDP is now looking for qualified Vietnamese universities, research centres and think tanks to research different issues of governance and public administration performance using the wealth of data and information provided by PAPI.
The research could cover one of six topics: urban and rural governance; urban and rural service delivery and administrative procedures; governance for administrative procedures and service delivery; governance and human development; addressing urban governance; and/or an open topic of related research.

- #SDG1: NO POVERTY - Countdown to Rio 2016 10 days "I was born in Belford Roxo, which didn’t have any infrastructure. When it rained, my family and I would huddle together in one room, as the rest of the house was full of rainwater. My friends were in an even worse situation. Among the miserable, I was the poor one; at least, I was not beaten at home. As a teenager, I sold magazine subscriptions, and lived amongst those who read, awaking in me the desire to read too. I began to live in a different environment, which stimulated in me the desire to take my university entrance exams. I tried for three years before passing, managing on my fourth attempt. Today, I have a masters, a doctorate and I even give classes to students who—like me—came from a difficult life. I created the John Rawls Laboratory so those in need could live in the research world. The best part of being a teacher is knowing that I'm helping my students fulfill their dreams." – Dalton Franco, 37 years old ---- #ODS1: ERRADICAR A POBREZA "Cresci em Belford Roxo, sem nenhuma infra-estrutura. Quando chovia, eu e minha família nos amontoávamos em um só cômodo, porque os outros estavam cheios de goteira. A situação dos meus amigos era ainda pior: entre os miseráveis, eu era o pobre – e, pelo menos, não apanhava em casa, ao contrário deles. Quando era adolescente, me tornei vendedor de assinatura de revista e passei a conviver com pessoas que liam, o que despertou em mim a vontade de ler também. Comecei a viver num meio diferente e isso estimulou em mim o desejo de passar no vestibular. Tentei por três anos antes de passar, mas consegui na quarta tentativa. Hoje, tenho mestrado, doutorado e dou aulas para alunos que, como eu, vieram de uma vida difícil. Criei o Laboratório John Rawls para que eles possam viver o mundo da pesquisa. A melhor parte de ser professor é saber que estou contribuindo para que meus alunos conquistem seus sonhos” – Dalton Franco, 37 anos #HumansOfRio #HumansOfMyWorld #Rio2016 #EstaciodeSa Laboratório John Rawls Universidade Estácio de Sá PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) Rio 2016 SDG Action Campaign 6 hours ago
