On July 13th, the Graduate Programs in International Affairs at The New School, along with UN Committee for Development Policy (CDP), Social Watch International and Global Policy Forum, held a webinar titled, “Launch of CDP Paper: National Reports on the 2030 Agenda: What do they (not) reveal?”.
The webinar was a side event of the High-Level Political Forum and it had the purpose of presenting the CDP Background Paper with the same title. During the webinar, the importance of national reporting on the 2030 Agenda, both by governments (VNRs) and civil society (“spotlight” or “shadow” reports) was discussed. Prof. Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Vice-Chair of the CDP, presented key findings of the analysis of 2019 VNRs, analyzing how countries addressed four key issues: leaving no one behind; pursuing global partnership as means of implementation (SDG17); addressing inequalities (SDG 10) and gender inequality (SDG5).
