P4R: Follow-up to the VNRs: Experiences and lessons learnt


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development encourages member states to ‘conduct regular and inclusive reviews of progress at the national and sub-national levels’. Reviewing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda is not an end in itself but a means to improve and accelerate implementation. During the VNR countries take stock of and assess progress and shortcomings in the implementation of the goals and targets. This process is a dynamic one wherein countries are constantly implementing, assessing and readjusting their policies to achieve the goals.

Among the questions to be addressed in the webinar are the following:

  • What have countries learnt about systematically identifying lessons learnt, good practices and policy recommendations during the review process?
  • What happens after a VNR is presented?
  • What challenges do national governments face in following up and how do national policies, plans and structures evolve?
  • How can Supreme Audit Institutions contribute to and strengthen national follow-up?
