Background

Overview of SD2015

This report tells the story of ‘SD2015: Delivering on the promise of the SDGs’, a EU funded project, implemented by the Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DSDG) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA).

The project intended to make two key impacts, notably:

1. “Governments adopt more inclusive policies to achieve sustainable development, as a result of enhanced involvement of Major Groups and other Stakeholders (MGoS); and

2. All types of governmental and non-governmental stakeholders work together to achieve full implementation of their sustainable development commitments”.

 

Activities were organized under three workstreams, notably:

• Workstream A: Training and Capacity Development

• Workstream B: Outreach, access to information and tools and knowledge-sharing

• Workstream C: Developing Support Networks and a “Community of Practice” 

DESA hopes to build on the experiences from this project to contribute to the UN’s Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs, and specifically the goal to ‘mobilize everyone, everywhere’ in favour of the SDGs.
