Session 2: Impact of regional Governance and institutional approaches on SDG Implementation – Examples from EU and Africa
The 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a unique framework for transformative pathways towards sustainability worldwide. It is universal, to be implemented by all countries within their national context. They call on all sectors, levels, and actors in society to work coherently. The paradigm shift implied with Agenda 2030 requires changes in governance and institutional setup and functioning– at and between all levels from the local to the global.
These two studies will present specific governance frameworks put in place for the implementation of the SDGs in EU Member States and presents the results in 28 Country Fiches. It will also showcase how the African region is dealing with governance issues to advance sustainable development.

Session 3 Achieving 2020 and 2025 targets
The 17 SDGs included in the 2030 Agenda include 169 targets, most with a completion date of 2030. However, for 20 SDG targets, the date of completion is 2020 and for three is 2025. With the 2020 deadline fast approaching, it would be important to assess the state of progress of the 2020 targets as well as undertake a reflection on what action would be required on those targets, including whether they should be updated to be brought in line with the 2030 targets.

Session 4: Inter-Agency Expert Group on SDG Indicators – state of play in preparation for the 2020 Review
The 2020 comprehensive review is an opportunity to improve the indicator framework to help the global monitoring of the 2030 agenda and provide the necessary guidance to countries, many of which are already well advanced in implementing their national framework and reporting platforms. The review needs to take into account investments already made at the national and international levels and should not undermine ongoing efforts. The IAEG will finalise the proposals for its review by the end of July 2019. Consultations will start on the preliminary proposals of possible deletions, replacements, adjustments and additions in July and August 2019.
