Global Launch of the 2022 Progressing National SDGs Implementation Report

The seventh edition of ‘Progressing National SDGs Implementation’ report aims to provide insights and assessment of the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) presented at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) in 2022. The analysis offers recommendations to inform discussions on SDG delivery, to help guide improved reporting and implementation at the mid-point of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Forty-four countries prepared a VNR in 2022. As the world began to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, there were some signs of stronger commitments to SDG reporting and implementation. There was also a broader number of civil society parallel reports prepared. The pledge to leave no one behind (LNOB) and the aim to connect delivery with the Paris Agreement on climate change were featured in a high number of reports. However, there was limited discussion of the challenges for civic freedoms and a reduction in references to local implementation.

The launch event will feature key findings from the report and hear from experts and government representatives on how they aim to build on the lessons learned to ensure effective follow-up and review of the SDGs.

The report was compiled by Action for Sustainable Development, ANND, BOND, Cepei, Cooperation Canada, CPDE, Forus, Global Focus, IISD, Save The Children, Sightsavers, and World Vision International.
