Webinar Progress Report on National Implementation of the SDGs

Dec 3, 2019

This is the third edition of an independent evaluation of the National Voluntary Reports presented to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum in 2018, with the participation of Cepei and other international civil society organizations.

What are the Voluntary National Reviews?

Voluntary National Reviews are one of the key mechanisms to track the implementation progress of the commitments enshrined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Presented annually at the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), they aim to promote accountability to citizens, support effective international cooperation, and foster exchange of best practices and mutual learning.

Why attend this webinar?

This online launch will share the main findings of a study commissioned by civil society, analysing the VNRs and a sample of civil society reports produced in 2018 for the HLPF. The assessment identifies best practices and provides recommendations for improving implementation and the VNR process and reports, as well as strengthening accountability around the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Cepei participated in the preparation of the report with the evaluation of the 8 VNRS presented by the Latin American and Caribbean Region at the HLPF 2018: Colombia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Bahamas, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The event will be held in English only, but summaries will be made available in French and Spanish.
