Abstract

Public management plays a crucial role in promoting sustainable development goals (SDGs). Efficient public administration is crucial in attaining the SDGs as countries address challenging matters such as poverty, gender equality, climate change, environmental degradation, healthcare, quality education and affordable energy. While there is a global dedication to achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs), the importance of public administration in effectively addressing intricate sustainable development difficulties remains a significant concern. Government policies and programs ought to be implemented by the public administration. Nevertheless, numerous obstacles hinder the implementation and integration of the SDGs in public management systems that promote public interest and ensure equality, representation and responsiveness to citizens.   The research design employed was a phenomenological approach, seeking to assess the role of public management by uncovering the experiences of individuals involved in sustainable development. To achieve a better coverage of the population within the sample, a stratified random sampling method was employed. The target demographic included public managers, policymakers, and other stakeholders. Stratification ensures that stakeholder groups are represented in proportion to their importance. The findings suggest that although sustainable development goals have been included in public management practices, there is a need to enhance their alignment across all dimensions. The formulation and implementation of policies strongly influenced the progress made towards achieving sustainable development goals. These recent discoveries not only enhance our comprehension of the role of public management in attaining sustainable development goals, but they also provide policymakers and practitioners with a clear direction.

Keywords: Public Management, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Stakeholder Engagement, Policy Formulation and Implementation.
