2021 HLPF side event: “Voluntary National Reports on the 2030 Agenda: What can we learn for a post-pandemic world?”
Date: Monday, 12 July 2021
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 PM (EDT)
On 12 July, the Secretariat of the Committee for Development Policy (CDP) co-organized together with the New School, Social Watch and Global Policy Forum, the HLPF side event “National Reports on the 2030 Agenda: What can we learn for a post-pandemic world?” to launch the CDP Background Paper "What did the 2020 Voluntary National Review (VNR) reports still not tell us?". CDP members presented key findings of their analysis of the 2020 VNRs, highlighting the disconnect between the ambition of the 2030 agenda and the attention given to the transformative policies in such areas as productive capacities, pandemic preparedness, inequalities and sustainable consumption and production.
Social Watch and Global Policy Forum are members of Civil Society Reflection Group on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that publishes the global Spotlight Report assessing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
