Moving towards an Inclusive, Participatory and Representative Implementation of the Agenda 2030

Moving towards an Inclusive, Participatory and Representative Implementation of the Agenda 2030

Ensuring an SDG Future-proof and Inclusive Implementation at All Levels

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 09:30 to 10:45
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development have been unanimously accepted by the world community as guiding principles to transform our world to sustainable development. The UNITAR | CIFAL Flanders and the European Network of Political Foundations (ENoP) combine their efforts in identifying and addressing some of the persistent challenges in implementing the SDGs. One of the challenges is the performance gap in linking the organisations’ objectives to the global and societal needs, reflected in the Agenda 2030. The persisting gap between civil society organisations (CSOs), public authorities and other development actors needs to be overcome to allow for the coherent implementation of the Agenda 2030. Establishing trust and cultivating a culture of cooperation to shape policies, political campaigns and concrete initiatives for the well-being of society is a complex and long-term goal, which requires an efficient multistakeholder approach. Change-makers will be given the opportunity to provide input and new insights on how to translate the global Agenda 2030 into a practical framework. The brainstorming session also addresses the question of how to bridge the gap between CSOs and public authorities in pursuing a coherent and inclusive implementation of the Agenda 2030.
