In 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, creating a framework for global sustainability policy for the next 15 years. Belarus and Moldova have also committed to implementing the Sustainable Development Goals at national level. But what about the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in these countries? What progress has been made, where is potential for improvement? These questions were examined for the first time in 2020/2021 in independent civil society reports (so-called Shadow Reports): in Belarus on the topic of responsible consumption (SDG 12) and in Moldova on sustainable energy (SDG 7) and climate (SDG 13). The reports are intended to inform the public and provide recommendations for both government and administration as well as civil society on how to achieve the 2030 Agenda.
We invite you to join the online expert talk "Looking to the Agenda 2030” to discuss the presented results of the reports as well as their methodology, the process of elaboration and their integration into the 2030 Agenda. We will also focus on how civil society can be strengthened in the monitoring process and what resources and exchange opportunities are needed.
