This September, world leaders will be gathering at the United Nations to take stock of the first four years of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the first time since its establishment in 2015 that Heads of State and Government will be reflecting on the advances, opportunities and lessons learned in making this ambitious global framework a reality.
The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) is planning a number of initiatives to ensure that a wide range of stakeholders, including local governments, is engaged in meaningful ways in this important stocktaking opportunity, and that the process is informed by good practices about SDG implementation.
To collect examples of good practives, success stories and lessons learned in SDG implementation, UN DESA is looking for inspiring breakthroughs and success stories from governments, UN entities, international and regional organizations as well as major groups and other stakeholders that are showing results and impacts. Submissions can be shared through a web-based portal until 28 February 2019. The submissions will be analyzed by a dedicated inter-agency team coordinated by UN DESA, and the results will be made available online for easy access and broad dissemination. Where applicable, the submissions will serve as inputs to thematic preparations for the July 2019 session of the HLPF.
