Save The Date! Join Us For A Ground Level People’s Forum in New York

The civil society and people’s’ movements will come together at the Ground Level People’s Forum to have their voice heard even as the United Nations and the High Level Political Forum (HLPF), where their futures are determined, continues to ignore them. The GLPF will hold our governments accountable for the commitments they have made under the SDGs and reaffirm our demand for Development Justice. Two years ago, Head of States and Governments gathered in New York at the UN Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda subsequently known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)/ Agenda 2030. The SDGs came after years of negotiations to determine the development priorities for the next fifteen years.

She said the active participation of state governments through dedicated offices in many states had marked a difference from what applied with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that preceded the SDGs. Priscilla Achakpa who is the executive director of Women Environmental Programme (WEP), said the SDGs would do even better if it would deepen grassroots involvement by encouraging local government areas to participate in implementation more actively. The National Stakeholders’ Validation of the 2017 National Voluntary Report on SDGs Implementation was organized by the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on SDGs for relevant government ministries and agencies as well as nongovernment organisations to observe and make input to the draft of the 2017 SDGs implementation report.
