Major groups and other stakeholders have played a significant role in the process to formulate the universal and transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs that are at its core. Achieving the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs in each country will depend on collaborative partnerships between governments and non-State actors at all levels, and at all stages of the programmatic cycle-planning, consultations, implementation, monitoring and reviews.
UN DESA Division for Sustainable Development (DSD), through the SD2015 project funded by the European Commission, is in the processes of organizing multi-stakeholder consultations and workshops for national and local policy makers in a number of countries to support dialogue and cooperation between national authorities and relevant stakeholder groups. These capacity building events will aim to foster multi-stakeholder cooperation for accountability and transparency, and support national efforts to strategize future engagement with the implementation, follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda. The present website is intended to provide stakeholders a range of resources to promote national capacity building, including learning materials, substantive submissions from stakeholders as well as details of capacity building activities being undertaken.
