What are Voluntary National Reviews?
Voluntary National Reviews 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?
2019 marks the end of the first 4-year cycle of reviews of the SDGs, so it is an important year to assess overall progress and consider potential improvements to the process.
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 2018for 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.
