Progressing national SDGs implementation: An independent assessment of the voluntary national review reports submitted to the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2017
“Progressing National SDG Implementation” is the second in an annual series of reports commissioned by civil society.
It documents and analyzes the 42 English, French and Spanish Voluntary National Review (VNR) reports submitted in 2017 to the UN’s High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
The report identifies ten key pillars that are essential to the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It also recognizes emerging good practice, and sets out a range of conclusions and recommendations with respect to how countries can both improve their implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and use the HLPF as an opportunity for mutual peer learning, knowledge exchange and support.
Summary provided by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC).
The report was published by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) and was written by Shannon Kindornay, Independent Consultant and Carleton University, with inputs from Javier Surasky, Centro de Pensamiento Estratégico Internacional (CEPEI), and Nathalie Risse, International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD).
