Honduras reiterates to the world its commitment to devoting effective, efficient and determined efforts to implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, under the leadership of the Ministry for General Government Coordination.
Important advances have been made in establishing the bases for implementing the 2030 Agenda, with a restructuring of institutional structures for supporting the Sustainable Development Goals; the inclusion of key actors; the development of exercises on integrating the Agenda into the national planning, oversight and assessment system; and a tie-in with the national budget.
As for governance and the actors involved in the Sustainable Development Goals, Honduras has decided to set up two commissions: a high-level commission tasked with taking strategic decisions and addressing challenges that arise during the process; and a technical commission to provide advice and follow up on the decisions taken. Both commissions are made up of key actors from the public sector, the private sector, workers’ and campesinos’ organizations, academia, organized civil society, and municipal governments. Their main challenge is to ensure the sustained involvement of all actors.
As for existing coordination mechanisms for implementing the 2030 Agenda, the sectoral cabinets are a fortress and should play a greater role in achieving the Goals. Their task is to define, create and ensure the sustainability of institutional linkages, along with their mechanisms for the comprehensive implementation, coordination, follow-up and assessment of multidimensional, intersectoral and inter institutional policies and measures.
(a) The executive branch decided to delegate the coordination of the process to the Ministry for General Government Coordination because of its role in planning, oversight and assessment, and because of its links with international cooperation and various sectors. As a result, it has become the primary national and international focal point in the process;
(b) A multidimensional poverty index for Honduras has been defined and approved under the leadership of the Ministry for General Government Coordination, with the participation of multidisciplinary and intersectoral technical and political commissions, and with the assistance of the Poverty and Human Development Initiative of Oxford University for the multidimensional measurement and analysis of the target of eradicating poverty in all its forms (Goal 1), going beyond the sole criterion of income;
(c) Articulation and connection work:
(i) An analysis of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, their 169 targets and their 232 indicators with respect to the four national goals and 23 targets in the Country Vision, 2010-2038, the 11 strategic guidelines and the 65 indicators in the National Plan, 2010-2022, as well as the 14 global outcomes of the Government’s Strategic Plan 2014-2018, resulted in the prioritization of 13 Sustainable Development Goals and 62 indicators for 43 targets;
(ii) The implementation of pilot exercises for strategic institutional plans and strategic municipal development plans based on outcome-oriented management integrating the Goals;
(iii) An oversight proposal using the outcome-based management platform and the Sustainable Development Goals;
(iv) An analysis of the connection between the budgeting of interventions and the Goals;
(d) Implementation of joint initiatives involving the Government, various national actors and international cooperation, with an innovative approach to integrating and analytically addressing the Goals in the areas of:
(i) Food security:
(iii) Drinking water and sanitation;
(iv) Modernization of the State and accountability;
(v) Partnerships for development.
(a) Coordinated budgeting and planning with a review, analysis and strengthening of technical capacities, development planning models, and their connection to the budgetary resources needed to achieve the Goals. That will urgently require coordinated work between the Ministry for General Government Coordination, the Finance Ministry and the National Congress;
(b) Decentralization of the 2030 Agenda by central and municipal Governments during their planning and budgeting processes in order to achieve the prioritized Goals. To achieve this, strategies for awareness-raising, planning, oversight, follow-up and assessment of the indicators for the prioritized targets, and an appropriate communication plan, will be needed;
(c) Better alignment between the role of cooperation and international financial bodies. In spite of advances resulting from their involvement, there is still room for collaboration in (i) oversight and assessment of targets and indicators; (ii) the operations of national governance mechanisms; (iii) the ongoing process of building institutional capacities and training actors; and (iv) assistance in financing sustainable development. The role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and that of the Finance Ministry will be key in those areas.
The 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme (SFS Programme) is a global multi-stakeholder initiative to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable food systems, all along the food value chain, from farm to fork. Among its focus themes are the promotion of sustainable diets; the reduction of food losses and waste; and strengthening resilient and diverse food production systems. The SFS Programme promotes activities that fall under these topics, in the areas of awareness raising, capacity development as well as facilitating access to knowledge, information and tools. The SFS Programme is one...[more]
