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 2021
The 6th edition of the Progressing National #SDGs Implementation report underlines that most voluntary national review reports are silent on shrinking civic spaces and ongoing attacks on human rights defenders and environmentalists.
The latest Progressing National #SDGs Implementation report shows reporting on #LeaveNoOneBehind increased, including around the impacts of #COVID19 on the most vulnerable. #GoForTheGoals
Countries continue to consistently provide information on most aspects of #2030Agenda implementation. However, backslides have been observed on awareness-raising activities and budgeting.
This report, the sixth edition of Progressing National SDGs Implementation, aims to provide useful insights and recommendations to inform these discussions and help guide improved implementation and reporting. The review of the 42 VNR reports submitted to the HLPF in 2021, as well as the analysis of 17 VNR-related civil society reports, show both positive and concerning trends.
The report covers all aspects of 2030 Agenda implementation through an examination of governance arrangements, institutional mechanisms and stakeholder engagement, policies, means of implementation, and reporting. Key findings, good practice case studies, emerging best practices and recommendations are presented throughout this edition.
