Baku. 23 March. REPORT.AZ/ The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has overwhelmingly adopted a resolution “Promoting human rights and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through transparent, accountable and efficient public services delivery”, initiated by Azerbaijan Government and co-authored by 72 other countries.
Report was informed in the press service of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
This is the first ever document adopted by the UNHCR at the initiative of Azerbaijan, since the adoption of the UN SDGs in 2015, which sets out the global development program.
The purpose of the resolution is to encourage the "transparent, accountable and efficient public services delivery" principle within the UN system, based on the ASAN service concept, which is one of the most important achievements of Azerbaijan in fighting corruption.
The UN adopted resolution notes with appreciation the application of innovative approaches, in particular the use of science and technological innovation by States, in the delivery of public services and encourages States with effective models for the delivery of public services to share their best practices with other States.
It also recognizes the United Nations Public Service Award, also received by ASAN Service, as the most prominent international recognition of excellence in public service within the United Nations system and encourages United Nations entities and other international organizations to continue to promote and reward such initiatives and their replication.
The adoption of the resolution is a clear indication of the support given by the international human rights community to the ongoing reforms carried out in the field of human rights, fight against corruption in Azerbaijan, as well as the establishment and expanding of "ASAN Service".
