Thursday, 14 July 2016

Conference room E
SDGs Learning, Training and Practice
The objective of the session is to discuss the features of the new types of integrated planning required to reflect key commitments coming out of long-term and midterm national priority-setting exercises. It will help identify areas that offer opportunities for promoting such an integrated approach to planning and policy-making. Finally, the session will provide space for sharing experiences and good practices from a number of countries that started addressing key inter-linkages between different commitments. Experience sharing will emphasize the importance of accounting for the specificities of the national settings in any priority-setting and planning exercise. At the closing of the programme, UNITAR will hold a 30-minute B.Y.O.P.C.: (Bring Your Own PC) learning session to showcase learning products and tools that can support the harmonization of global, regional and national commitments at the country level.
