Bringing the SDG’s to life – Country implementation and UN support
In September 2016, the United Nations Development Group (UNDG), comprised of over 30 UN agencies, including the 5 United Nations agencies leading the UN Network for SUN, launched a new report which captures implementation stories from 16 countries 6 months after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. “The Sustainable Development Goals are Coming to Life – Stories of Country Implementation and UN Support” illustrates how these countries are beginning to integrate the 2030 Agenda into visions, strategies and plans at the national, subnational and local levels with the support of development partners.
The country efforts include raising public awareness, seeking engagement of different stakeholders, adapting the SDGs to national and local contexts, increasing coherence across policy areas and between levels of government, assessing risk and strengthening monitoring and accountability mechanisms. SUN Countries featured in the publication: Mauritania, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Somalia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Philippines, El Salvador.
