This final report summarizes Cepei's work in adapting the 17 Rooms initiative in Latin America. The objective of the work was to move forward on the SDGs accomplishment in the region and to bring together, through dialogue, stakeholders from different sectors to find short-term solutions.
The 2023 High-Level Political Forum once again was unable to lead the acceleration of the SDGs through concrete steps and proposals. A first balance highlights some positive aspects of the event and others that will have to be corrected in order for the space to be action-oriented.
This year’s HLPF takes place in a global context that is more complicated than it seems. Although some encouraging elements are revealed at first glance, these are combined with a political framework in which priorities are not focused on accelerating the path toward sustainable development.
LAC needs to reinforce both the implementation and tracking of SDG 16. There is only information about 11 of the 24 indicators, while seven of these 11 show insufficient progress to reach the targets by 2030, the other four seem to have taken steps back.
To generate data and information aimed at facilitating decision-making and informed policy planning to achieve the SDGs, Cepei’s work includes carrying out a quality analysis of national SDG governance established by each country in LAC.
