Global Launch of the Progressing National SDGs Implementation Report

The Progressing National SDGs Implementation report provides an independent analysis of reporting by UN 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 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 overall implementation of the sustainable development goals. 

The report will be launched during an interactive webinar that will outline key findings from the report and offer reflections from global and national civil society organizations on the findings.

A Steering Committee guided preparations of this report. It was led by Cooperation Canada and comprised the following organizations: ActionAid (Denmark); Action for Sustainable Development (A4SD); Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND); Bond; Centro de Pensamiento Estratégico Internacional (CEPEI); Cooperation Canada; CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE); Forus International; Global Focus; International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD); Save the Children (UK); Sightsavers; and World Vision International.
