Full Text Sharing

This year's edition, building on the rich insights from previous reports since 2017, focuses on evaluating the delivery of the 2030 Agenda in alignment with the UN Secretary-General’s guidelines. Key areas of assessment include governance, civil society participation, and the principle of Leaving No One Behind, bringing together official Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) with independent analysis from civil society organizations.

As the HLPF undergoes a review by UN member states, our report aims to present specific recommendations to enhance the VNR process, emphasizing:

  • governance, institutional mechanisms, and stakeholder engagement;
  • policy frameworks for the 2030 Agenda implementation; and
  • partnership models for SDG delivery focusing on localization and inclusivity.

This launch event will provide a moment for dialogue, offering insights into the synergies and discrepancies between official reports and civil society perspectives. To enable the inclusion and active engagement of participants, this meeting will have simultaneous interpretation in English, French, and Spanish.

The report was compiled by Action for Sustainable DevelopmentBONDCooperation CanadaForus, IISD, Save The Children, and Sightsavers.
