How civil society organisations can engage in the implementation and monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals

Brochure | February 15, 2022
Related area of expertise: Sustainability Governance

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 ambitious objectives for a greener, healthier, more peaceful, prosperous and equal planet. Adopted in 2015 by the 193 member states of the United Nations, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out a supremely ambitious and transformational vision for realizing sustainable development worldwide. Since the framework intends to have a profound impact on the lives of citizens in all countries; actors of civil society, like CSOs (civil society organisations) should be contributing to its implementation and monitoring. The principle of public participation is enshrined in the Agenda both in the Declaration and in one of its goals as well (SDG 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions).

Like the reasons why CSOs could and should engage in SDG implementation, the actual ways of engagement may also be manifold. This brochure discusses potential actions CSOs might take mainly in relation to the process of implementation and monitoring of the SDGs. The proposed actions are relevant to all sectors, whether they are environmental, social or economic.
