Progressing national SDGs implementation: An independent assessment of the voluntary national review reports submitted to the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2017

Civil society organizations have launched a report that identifies best practices and recommendations for improving SDG implementation and strengthening accountability on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The report, published by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC), shows that “the majority of countries reporting in 2017 appear to have established foundational elements for implementation.” Still, “much can be learnt and applied from emerging standard practice and best practice to date by different countries.” The collaborative report titled, ‘Progressing National SDG Implementation: an Independent Assessment of the Voluntary National Review Reports Submitted to the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2017,’ was launched during a global webinar hosted by the CCIC on 15 March 2018. It is based on an analysis of voluntary national review (VNR) reports submitted by 45 countries and civil society reports produced in advance of the 2017 session of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
