VNR Lab: Analyzing VNRs – What did we learn so far?
The Lab, organized by DESA EAPD/Development Policy Branch, was held virtually on 7 July and included speakers from the Committee for Development Policy (CDP), the UN system, civil society and selected countries. It built on the work that the CDP has done on VNRs since 2017, focusing on good practices to implement the principle of Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) and discussed how these could be used for mutual learning for implementing the 2030 Agenda.

About the VNR Lab Series
During the ECOSOC High-Level Segment/Ministerial Meetings of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development DESA convenes 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 aim 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.
