The best approach is when Civil Society Reports are prepared with wide open public participation from all over the country through (online) consultations and review processes. Below are approximate steps for the work on the Report:

Presentation to the International Community
Presentation of the primary results of the Report to the general public and governmental representatives
Issue of the Civil Society Report
Updated chapters should be presented for collecting final written comments especially to those who were not able to join the consultation process. Key contributions should be integrated into the chapters
Open announcement of the Civil Society Report preparation should be released and gathering key experts and organizations working on every SDGs should be organized
Selected experts develop key points on positive achievements and trends, challenges and recommendations
Preparation of chapter drafts
