Further to the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in September 2015, reviews of its implementation take place at the global level in the context of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) on an annual basis and under the auspices of the United Nations General Assembly on a quadrennial basis. All UN Member States are expected to conduct regular and inclusive national reviews of progress on the SDGs and contribute to regional and global reviews. Such reviews should draw on national processes and include contributions from different stakeholders. This massive open online course (MOOC) is designed to support this process and is aimed at strengthening the capacities of Governments to engage in an effective and meaningful way with MGoS (Major Groups and other stakeholders) as they implement and review progress towards the achievement of the SDGs. It complements a range of other capacity development activities being rolled out, among others, by UN Secretariat to meet the needs of both governments and other stakeholders with regards to the 2030 Agenda and HLPF process.
This course is a self-paced course requiring around 10-15 hours of effort in total.
