2017 Voluntary National Reviews Synthesis Report

Case studies and best practices

This Synthesis report of the 2017 Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) provides a snapshot of the challenges, opportunities as well as lessons learnt of the process towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, taking into account the forty-three countries that presented their VNRs – national development plans – at last July’s High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. The 43 VNRs, featured in this synthesis report, represent an inspiring repertoire of country profiles in action. This synthesis report can hardly do justice to the full range of information in the VNRs. It is hoped that by providing a snapshot of country action, the Synthesis Report can facilitate an enhanced understanding of challenges, as well as opportunities, lessons as well as gaps, in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. As highlighted in the last section of the report, awareness-raising among all stakeholders is crucial to accelerating implementation of the 2030 Agenda and leaving no one behind. Governments, civil society, business, and the wider public need to learn more about the SDGs to act upon them – to be agents of change for a more sustainable future.
