Greetings and welcome to the Stakeholder Engagement Community of Practice for the Tuvalu VNR.
Tuvalu's government, through its Ministry of Finance, is currently developing a Voluntary National Review (VNR) for the country. Tuvalu has not developed a VNR since becoming a member of the United Nations.
On 25-27 September 2015, the United Nations Headquarters hosted a meeting of the Heads of State, Government, and High Representative to decide on a new global sustainable development goal for the next 15 years. This is referred to as the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
It consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 199 targets. This is a continuation of the Millennium Development Goals. These are universal goals and targets that require the entire world, developed and developing countries alike, to collaborate in order to balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social, and environmental.
What is a National Voluntary Review?
The Voluntary National Review is one of the mechanisms for monitoring and reviewing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This review is a process by which countries take stock of and evaluate their progress toward achieving the goals and targets. It is a periodic and inclusive assessment of national and sub-national progress that is country-led and country-driven.
Why is a Voluntary National Review necessary?
This review enables the exchange of experience in terms of the difficulties encountered, the lessons learned, and the successes achieved by each country. Additionally, it speeds up the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Furthermore, this review will galvanize multi-stakeholder support and partnerships for the Agenda's implementation.
Engage stakeholders in dialogue and exchange to share challenges, best practices, and lessons learned, as well as to report on progress toward achieving the 2030 Agenda and SDGs in preparation for the first Tuvalu VNR Report.
