This report presents new data on the impacts that COVID-19 has had on stakeholder engagement in the implementation, follow up and review of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at national, regional and sub-national levels. It seeks to catalogue important effects, highlight challenges, and present good practices and innovation for stakeholder engagement. It draws on survey answers from more than 500 respondents across two surveys - one for government focal points supporting the 2020/21 Voluntary National Review (VNR) countries and another for all stakeholders.
