In time for the 2021 United Nations High-Level Political Forum (UN HLPF), the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) is presenting civil society perspectives on the global progress in achieving sustainable development, drawing from its study on the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs).
The findings have been compiled in a report titled The long road to development: How effectiveness gaps hinder progress in Agenda 2030, which will be launched virtually on 6 July 2021, at 8AM in Buenos Aires, 1PM in Paris, and 7PM Manila.
At the event, speakers will share the reflections and recommendations of CSOs on the VNRs and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the national level, using the lens of effective development cooperation (EDC). These were drawn from the results of a survey conducted by CPDE last March, participated in by 109 CSOs from 45 countries, all but three of which are developing countries.
The event will be available in English, Spanish, and French, and interested parties may sign up via this link: https://bit.ly/VNRLaunchSignup.
Held under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council, the High-Level Political Forum is the UN’s main platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs. It especially provides for the active participation of all United Nations member states and state members of specialised agencies towards achieving the goals.
This year, the HLPF aims to be a forum for discussing ways towards a sustainable and resilient recovery from COVID-19, to put the world back on track to realise the 2030 Agenda.
CPDE is an open platform that unites CSOs from around the world on the issue of effective development cooperation (EDC). It strives to make development more effective by reshaping the global aid architecture and empowering CSOs working on the ground.
It represents CSOs from six regions (Africa, Asia, Pacific, Europe, Middle East & North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean), and eight sectors (Agriculture and Rural Development, Feminist Group, Indigenous Peoples, Faith-Based Organisations, International Civil Society Organisations, Youth, Labour, and Migrants and Diaspora).
