Governance of the 2030 Agenda in Latin America and the Caribbean: institutions and mechanisms for the implementation and monitoring of the SDGs

“Following the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, countries started to carry out processes to establish institutional frameworks for the national implementation and monitoring of the SDGs. Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries designed various national governance strategies, assigning higher priority to the inclusion of nongovernmental stakeholders in these structures, and differing roles”.

This report maps and analyzes the experiences of LAC countries, with special reference to the multi-stakeholder working mechanisms that have been established as part of the national governance of the 2030 Agenda.

The contents of this work are carried out on a broad sampling of national laws, national, regional and global activities and meetings, and reports related to the implementation and monitoring of the 2030 Agenda, with a time span of five years: January 2015 to January 2020.

Availability of SDG indicators in LAC countries that have monitoring platforms

The mapping of non-governmental actors included in national governance structures for the implementation and monitoring of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in LAC shows that there are both opportunities to be exploited and challenges to be overcome. Each opportunity identified implies the challenge of its concretion and the possibility of adopting specific measures.
