Strengthening the multi-stakeholder dimension of national development planning and SDG mainstreaming

strengthening card

The 2030 Agenda calls for the meaningful and active participation of people and stakeholders at all stages, from SDG integration into national strategies, to implementation, and national monitoring and review. United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) have a key role to play in supporting Member States in implementing the commitment of inclusive and transparent participation of all stakeholders in the 2030 Agenda and in facilitating inclusive, safe and enabling environments where stakeholders can contribute. 

The Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DSDG) of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs provides substantive support and capacity-building on stakeholder engagement for the 2030 Agenda. With support from a grant provided by the European Commission, DSDG has partnered with the United Nations Development Cooperation Office (UN DCO) and with a selected number of UN Resident Coordinator Offices in their efforts to strengthen the multi-stakeholder dimension of national development planning and SDG mainstreaming. Reports were developed to take stock of the current landscape of stakeholder participation in SDG implementation in each country and to provide forward-looking proposals that are used in development and implementation of the United Nations Cooperation Frameworks, national SDG strategies and Voluntary National Review processes, depending on the country needs.
