The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) presents an ideal opportunity to launch the IDPS 2019-21 Peace Vision, given its focus on reviewing progress on SDG 16 on achieving peaceful, just and inclusive societies, in addition to SDG 8 on sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth and employment, SDG 10 on reducing inequality within countries and SDG 17 on strengthening global partnerships to support and achieve the 2030 Agenda. All of these SDGs are directly relevant to the IDPS’ thematic priorities and approach. [Also available in: Fr ]
This project aims to ensure the meaningful inclusion, participation and contribution of national and local CSOs during government-led SDG consultation and validation processes in five selected countries - Côte d'Ivoire, Central African Republic, Chad, Sierra Leone and Timor-Leste - going for a Voluntary National Review (VNR) in 2019. CSPPS is joining forces with the TAP Network (and a range of other partners) to implement this project ahead of the High-Level Political Forum taking place in New York in July 2019. This Communication Update gives you an overview snapshot of where things stand today regarding the project in all five selected countries. A next updated version of this document will be shared in due course.
