There are many issues that have to be addressed to increase the quality of life in developing countries as targeted by SDGs: poverty and hunger, climate change, energy, consumption, marine resources, inequality, economic growth, ecosystems and environment, peace and justice, human settlements, water management, education for sustainable development and lifelong learning, food security, gender equality, industrial sustainability, good health and inclusive well-being, accountable and inclusive institutions, and the global partnership for sustainable development.Related to these issues, questions may be raised on how effective the role of the public administration is in each country in coping with the above problems. Most developing countries usually adopt a model of public administration from other developed countries. The way of managing development and public services has been based on a bureaucratic model adopted from western countries.
