The IASIA 2022 Conference will take place in Rabat, Morocco on July 25-29, 2022 and will be organized by the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA), the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) Africa, and the African Local Governance Academy (ALGA) in partnership with the Faculté des Sciences Juridiques, Economiques et Sociales - Agdal of l'Université Mohammed V de Rabat.

Its main theme is: "Implementing and Promoting Effective Governance Principles to Leave No One, No Place Behind” which includes the 11 Principles on Effective Governance designed by UN-CEPA and endorsed/adopted by ECOSOC for sustainable development. The need for effectiveness has been emphasised, namely competence, sound policymaking and collaboration. Another critical focus area is accountability with integrity, transparency and independent oversight being the critical components. The concentration on inclusiveness underscores the notion of leaving no one behind through non-discrimination, participation, subsidiarity and intergenerational equity which are imperative for the sustainability of future generations.
