The DESA Division for Sustainable Development is pleased to announce the launch the of the 2030 Agenda Voluntary National Reviews online platform. The platform provides ease of access to reports, documentation, web cast sessions, statements and presentations from countries taking part in the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
The HLPF VNRs are a key component of the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs, and aim to facilitate the sharing of experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, with a view to accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The VNRs also seek to strengthen policies and institutions of governments and to mobilize multi-stakeholder support and partnerships for the implementation of the SDGs.
The platform currently includes 22 countries that presented their VNRs to the HLPF in 2016, 44 countries that are on track for conducting a review during the 2017 meeting of the HLPF (10-19 July 2017, New York), and 6 countries that have already signed up for the 2018 review cycle.
