Hungarian NGOs speak up for coherent SDG implementation

The Sustainable Development Committee of the Hungarian Parliament held a session on 9 July dealing with the Hungarian Voluntary National Review of the SDG implementation. Péter Szíjjártó, minister for foreign affairs and trade reported on the Hungarian implementation, highlighting issues like demography, energy, water, migration and innovation. Among the invitees Klára Hajdu and Ákos Éger also intervened recalling the recommendations of Hungarian NGOs on SDG implementation on behalf of the Hungarian NGO Roundtable for the SDGs. The Roundtable prepared its own input into the VNR collecting recommendations on efficient insitutional framework, holistic solutions for problems that address the underlying drivers, as well as effective social dialogue. The Roundtable hopes that improved conditions will enable better cooperation between the government and stakeholders in the future.   Photo: Kovács Márton/KKM
