"Embracing Innovation in Government Global Trends 2020" is a report that analyzes the innovative responses of governments around the world to the COVID-19 pandemic. The report was produced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI) and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI).

The report highlights five key themes that have emerged as driving factors for public sector innovation during the crisis: 1) rapid acceleration of digital innovation and transformation, 2) seeking bottom-up solutions and insights, 3) social solidarity and caring, 4) reducing the spread through virus tracking and adaptive action, and 5) forging a path to recovery.

The report provides case studies and examples to illustrate how governments have applied innovative solutions to address the pandemic. It also emphasizes the need for governments to develop a more systems-wide, strategic view of innovation in order to prepare for future crises and to address persistent systemic and structural issues.
