The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in 2015 puts follow-up and review processes at the heart of global and national efforts to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since 2013, the ENVforum has been actively engaged in the global discussion surrounding the SDGs and, through its program, contributes to the bottom- up process that supports the implementation and monitoring of SDGs by providing Asian and European countries with key insights into sustainable development planning.
The ENVforum held a two-day workshop on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) entitled, “Sustainable Development Goals Delivery: Planning for Implementation” for policymakers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam (CLMV) involved in implementing the SDGs in their national contexts. This workshop was held on 14-15 February 2017 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar and was co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) with the cooperation of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) and the Ministry of Planning and Finance (MOPF) of Myanmar. The Workshop focused on monitoring and means of implementation as key thematic areas in SDG implementation and monitoring.
