VNR Lab 9: SDG advisory bodies and their role in national sustainable development policy cycles
Monday, 12 July 2021
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Virtually (held New York time)
Please note that the VNR Lab 9 will be translated In English / En Français / En Español.
This VNR-Lab will debate the importance and various forms of national sustainable development policy cycles, including national strategies, indicator and prioritization processes, as well as Voluntary National Reviews and peer review processes. If in accordance, they provide for solid policy cycles at national level, including input and review from the international level. A number of national multi-stakeholder advisory bodies will provide insights on how they work in trustworthy and reciprocal relationships with their governments to deliver on the 2030 Agenda. The event will shed light on the variety of existing multi-stakeholder platforms and their concrete role in the local implementation of the SDGs, while focusing on their role as facilitators of consensual and inclusive advice on practical and socially acceptable policy pathways. Organized by the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) and DESA.
