Global Governance Initiative

Background

The current global order confronts several challenges simultaneously, including managing the global shift of power, securing the provision of global goods, and doing so in a legitimate and accountable manner for the citizens most affected.

To strengthen global governance, UNDP China and China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE) started the Global Governance Initiative since 2012. As of September 2017, three high level policy forums (2012, 2014, 2016) were organized, and three flagships (2013, 2015, 2017) to summarize and elaborate the main ideas discussed at the forum have been published.
