Major groups and other stakeholder (MGoS) are crucial to the successful implementation, follow-up, and review of the 2030 Agenda. In preparation for the 2017 HLPF, MGoS contributed to review processes at all levels, including at the Regional Forums for Sustainable Development (RFSDs) and through national review mechanisms.
In line with paragraph 89 of the 2030 Agenda (A/RES/70/1) and paragraphs 14 and 15 of General Assembly Resolution 67/290 (A/RES/67/290), this session offers MGoS an opportunity to “report on their contribution to the implementation of the Agenda” and speak to the topics of the HLPF.
The session will be organised in collaboration with the HLPF Coordination Mechanism of MGoS and it will focus on the recommendations of MGoS around the implementation, follow-up, and review of the 2030 Agenda, with a particular emphasis on the theme of the 2017 HLPF and the specific goals being reviewed. It will also survey the contributions of MGoS themselves to the overall successful implementation of the agenda, especially at the national level and during ongoing national review processes.
Proposed Guiding Questions
- How has the engagement of MGoS shaped the processes to review the 2030 Agenda and helped fill implementation gaps?
- What are some concrete actions taken by major groups and other stakeholders around the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs?
- How can implementation efforts by MGoS be included in the overall reporting on progress made on the 2030 Agenda?
