Critical milestones towards coherent, efficient and inclusive follow-up and review at the global level

Meeting at a special summit at the United Nations in September 2015, world leaders committed themselves to an ambitious global agenda, “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, with the overarching Goal of eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable development. The Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. All States and all stakeholders recognized their respective responsibilities for the implementation of the Agenda. In paragraph 72 of the Agenda, Governments also emphasized that a robust, voluntary, effective, participatory, transparent and integrated follow-up and review framework would make a vital contribution to implementation, and in paragraph 73, that it would promote accountability to citizens, support active international cooperation in achieving the Agenda and foster exchange of best practices and mutual learning. The present report explores how to put in place a coherent, efficient and inclusive follow-up and review system at the global level, within the mandates outlined in the Agenda. It does not attempt to describe or prescribe how to implement the 2030 Agenda, the primary responsibility for which lies at the national level; nor does it attempt to describe the wide array of possible multilateral support mechanisms to such implementation efforts.
