Global Launch of the 2020 Progressing National SDGs Implementation Report
The Progressing National SDGs Implementation report provides an independent analysis of reporting by United Nations Member States to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF). Supported by a coalition of civil society organizations from around the world and prepared by Cooperation Canada, the report examines the status of 2030 Agenda implementation, unpacks trends in reporting, and identifies good practice.
This year’s report will showcase positive trends with respect to reporting on partnerships—including the role played by civil society—and policy coherence. However, it also underlines the continued silence by Member States in Voluntary National Review (VNR) reports on the closing of the civic space, as well as the lack of reference to national accountability mechanisms. Moreover, this year’s report discusses the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the overall implementation of the sustainable development goals.
The interactive webinar will outline key findings from the report and offer reflections from global and national civil society organizations on the findings. Join the global launch for insights on opportunities for engagement by civil society and other stakeholders at the HLPF and in VNR processes in 2021.
