Get involved Vol 23, No. 1 - January 2019

Are you an SDG changemaker? Share your good practices!

Three years into the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, governments, UN entities, civil society organizations and companies around the world are taking unprecedented steps to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and build a better world for all. To achieve the 17 global goals by 2030, we need even more action, faster.

To help stakeholders working toward the SDGs, UN DESA’s Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DSDG) has launched a call for submissions of good practices, success stories and lessons learned in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Submissions to the SDG Good Practices platform will be analyzed by a dedicated inter-agency team coordinated by UN DESA, and the results will be made available online for easy access and broad dissemination. Where applicable, the submissions can serve as inputs to thematic preparations for the 2019 sessions of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).

The SDG Good Practices platform seeks to answer the questions:

  • Where do we stand?
  • Are we on track?
  • What are the inspiring breakthroughs and success stories that are showing results and impacts?
  • What are the good practices that can be replicated and scaled up?
  • What are the gaps and constraints and how should we address them?
  • Looking ahead, what steps should we take to accelerate progress?

An event will be organized in the lead-up to the SDG Summit in September 2019 to showcase a selection of the success stories and to present the main findings of the evidence-based stock-taking. We hope that the submission, collection, analysis and dissemination of good practices, success stories and lessons learned will help galvanize the momentum for implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Now, though, we need your input to make this analysis meaningful! Submissions can be made now through 28 February 2019 through DSDG’s web-based portal. All are encouraged to follow the template to the extent possible.
