Supporting the review and implementation processes of sustainable development goals

As of: October 2020

Objective and activities

With the 2030 Agenda, the international community has set itself an ambitious plan for sustainable development. All the participating countries are facing the challenge of creating a framework for the implementation of their sustainable development goals (SDGs). The project supports the national implementation of the SDGs and their reporting processes, including climate, environment and biodiversity goals. To this end, it is strengthening “Partners for Review”, a BMU and BMZ initiative. The network supports the exchange of information on reporting mechanisms and the joint learning of these at the national level, and also internationally in the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). The project also supports the BMU in its processing of experiences with the SDGs and in responding to inquiries about them. This applies in particular to synergies of the Agenda 2030 with national strategy processes in the areas of climate, environment and biodiversity and to synergies with other reporting processes./

State of implementation/results

  • The 6th network meeting of the "Partners for Review" (P4R) Network took place from 22./23. May 2019 in Oaxaca, Mexico. E.g. it focused on the sub-national reporting. At the network meeting, the "Whole of Government" discussion paper was published (… .pdf).
  • In addition, the P4R Secretariat participated in various global and regional events under the 2030 Agenda with side events and contributions: High-level Political Forum (HLPF) 2019, Asia / Pacific Regional Forum (UNESCAP), Regional Forum Europe (UNECE), Latin America and Caribbean Regional Forum (UNECLAC) and the UN Expert Group Meeting.
  • The 7th Network Meeting of the "Partners for Review" network will be held from 11.-13. November 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam.
  • From 08.-12. April 2019 a professional exchange for the establishment and development of statistical systems and SDG-relevant implementation between environmental and SDG statisticians from the Latin American area and German and European actors took place in cooperation with the UN Regional Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC)
  • On 19 June 2019, BMU and BMZ organized the first national preparatory conference for the HLPF in Berlin. Federal Environment Minister Schulze and Development Minister Müller discussed with high-ranking representatives from politics, civil society, science and industry how more ambitious implementation action can be achieved. The project supported the organization of the event.
  • The Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR), published in September, underscores the need for global ambition. The project supported the consultation of scientists through a regional workshop in Amman, Jordan, on 29./30. April 2019. To disseminate the core messages of the GSDR, a workshop will be held in Brussels in October 2019 (target group European stakeholders). Further workshops in Berlin (German stakeholders) and the regions involved in the consultation workshops will follow (November: Africa, Indonesia; 1st quarter 1/2020: Jamaica). The aim is to promote the translation of key messages into action-oriented measures using the identified synergies and interactions. In terms of content, concept and organization, the project will support the dissemination workshops in Indonesia and Jamaica in cooperation with the IKI Strategic Environmental Dialogue project.
  • The information film on the "Coherence of Global Political Agendas" was presented at Global Platform Disaster Risk Reduction (…).
  • The results of the evaluation of existing SDG interaction tools, the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement ("Tool Analysis") will be available from November 2019 via the IKI website.
