With widespread acknowledgement the world is off track to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, there’s hope governments will step up their actions to meet their development commitments in the next decade and ensure no one is left behind.
For the past four years, a coalition of civil society organizations – including Cepei – have reviewed national governments’ reports to the United Nations on their SDG progress. These Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) are meant to serve as transparent, thorough analyses of where each country is on their SDG journey.
Delivered annually at the High-level Political Forum in New York, VNRs are:
Meant to be prepared through inclusive and participatory processes
Invaluable sources on good practices, lessons learned and challenges in implementation
A basis for peer learning and accountability at the global level
The Progressing National SDGs Implementation report covers all aspects of 2030 Agenda implementation by examining governance and institutional arrangements, stakeholder engagement, policies, the means of implementation and reporting. By exploring and adopting its key findings, good practice case studies, and recommendations, governments can take a large step forward in their collective effort to get back on track.
