VNR Lab “Leaving no one behind: Inclusive implementation and reporting”

On 10 July, DISD, EAPD and DPIDG of DESA, in collaboration with OHCHR, UNWomen and the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies, organized the VNR Lab “Leaving no one behind: Inclusive implementation and reporting”. The lab focused on how public/civil institutions can create mechanisms to ensure inclusive processes in the implementation of SDGs and VNR preparatory and reporting processes to ensure that no one is left behind.

The Secretariat of the Committee for Development Policy (CDP) presented key findings of the analysis of the 2018 VNR reports conducted by the CDP outlining how countries addressed three key issues: leaving no one behind; pursuing global partnership as means of implementation (SDG17); and quality education (SDG4).

About the VNR Lab Series

During the ECOSOC High-Level Segment/Ministerial Meetings of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development DESA convened a series of VNR Labs, organized in response to demand from Member States, UN bodies and major stakeholders to take stock of the experiences of VNRs. The VNR Labs aimed to provide an informal platform for exchanges between countries that have conducted a VNR, and those that have not, as well as the UN system and other stakeholders.
