Progressing National SDG Implementation An independent assessment of the Voluntary National Review reports submitted to
the United Nations High-Level Political Forum in 2017
March 15th, 2018, 9:00 - 10:45am EST | 14.00-15.45pm GMT

What are Voluntary National Reviews?

VNRs are one of the key mechanisms to track the implementation progress of the commitments enshrined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Presented annually at the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), they aim to promote accountability to citizens, support effective international cooperation, and foster exchange of best practices and mutual learning.

Why attend this webinar?

This online launch will share the main findings of a study commissioned by civil society, analysing the VNRs and a sample of civil society reports produced in 2017 for the HLPF. The assessment identifies best practices and provides recommendations for improving implementation and the VNR process and reports, as well as strengthening accountability around the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
The launch will also include a round table discussion with panelists from different sectors sharing their perspectives on the independent assessment as well as on the VNR process.

The event will be held in English only, but summaries will be made available in French and Spanish.
El evento se realizará en inglés pero se enviarán resúmenes en francés y español.
L'événement se déroulera en anglais seulement, mais les résumés seront disponibles en français et en espagnol.
