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 the Canadian Council for International Co-operation, the report examines the current status of 2030 Agenda implementation, unpacks trends in reporting and identifies good practices.
This year’s report showcases positive trends with respect to reporting on leaving no one behind and stakeholder engagement. However, it also underlines the continued silence by Member States in Voluntary National Review reports on the closing of the civic space and discusses how this impacts the ability of all stakeholders to engage and implement the SDGs.
Two sessions of the global launch webinar will take place — at 8:00 am and 8:00 pm EST on 26 February. Speakers during each webinar will outline key findings from the report, offer reflections from global and national civil society organizations on the findings and provide insights on opportunities for engagement by civil society and other stakeholders at the HLFP and in VNR processes in 2020.
