VNR lessons for the Decade of Action and to Build Forward Better: Identifying Best Practices and Progressing Effective SDGs Implementation
The side event will explore how the outputs of these different research processes could be more widely disseminated and used as the basis for building stakeholder capacities and promoting better quality VNRs.
It will produce a range of recommendations for the Member States and other stakeholders on how the quality of VNRs submitted to the HLPF can continue to be improved each year through the development of a more structured and integrated multi-stakeholder system of VNR-related research, reflection, exchange, and capacity building.
