This is called the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. It consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets. This is a continuation of what has not been achieved under Millennium Development Goals. These are universal goals and targets which involved the entire world, both developed and developing countries to work together to balance the three dimensions of sustainable development which include the economic, social, and environmental.
What is a Voluntary National Review?
The Voluntary National Review is a part of the follow-up and review mechanisms of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This review is a process by which countries take stock of and assess progress and shortcomings in the implementation of the goals and targets. It is a regular and inclusive review of progress at the national and sub-national level, which is country-led and country-driven
Why it is important to conduct a Voluntary National Review?
This review facilitates the sharing of experience in terms of challenges faced, lessons learned and the successes each country achieved throughout. It also accelerates the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. This review will also mobilize multi-stakeholder support and partnerships for the implementation of this Agenda.
