Background

The Division for Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs and the ESCAP Sub-Regional Office in the Pacific are co-organizing the Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (PFSD) and Capacity Building Workshop on Pacific SIDS. The meetings, which will feature in-person and virtual participation from Pacific SIDS, will take place from 10 to 11 December 2020 in Nadi, Fiji.

The tailored capacity building workshop, which follows the PFSD, aims to build the capacity of countries in the Pacific region to review and implement the SDGs, including through lessons learned from the VNR process, with a focus on COVID-19 responses. It seeks to assist countries to implement solutions and address gaps that they themselves have identified in their VNRs, as well as the ways in which countries need to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and fully implement the SDGs.
