Integrating Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) into national sustainability policy cycles

10. Juni 2022 - 21:13

Co-hosted by the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE), the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Colombian National Planning Department (DNP) and the Federal Government of Germany

Date: 14th July, 13:15-14:45 EST in New York

Summary: Urban and communal sustainability reporting is growing faster than ever. More and more cities and municipalities have been involved in sustainability reporting, the so-called Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs). This side-event will discuss the role of VLRs for local delivery of the 2030 Agenda as well as their relevance for national sustainability policy cycles. The following questions are foreseen to guide the discussion:

  1. What are the implications of the sustainability activities included in VLRs for national policy decisions and, conversely, what are the feedback effects of national strategy and reports on municipalities?
  2. In what thematic areas of the 2030 Agenda are municipalities the key actors to drive change and delivery of SDGs (and where do they need to have a solid interface with national policy making)?
  3. Where do municipalities share similarities and where are differences in establishing VLRs in various country context settings?

This debate will focus on policy coherence of local and national policymaking and provides snapshots from Germany and Colombia (a third country perspective from the Global South is still under consideration).

VNR-Lab on the role of multi-stakeholder advisory bodies in VNR processes and their potential to accelerate SDG delivery

10. Juni 2022 - 19:03

Date: 12th July 8:00 – 9:00 am EST in New York, Room 11 in the UN-building
Language: English

Abstract: This VNR-Lab will focus on various national stakeholder engagement formats for delivering the 2030 Agenda and contributing to VNR drafting processes with society as a whole. These formats can often constitute central components of national governance architectures and are highly context dependent. They therefore vary accordingly in their set-up, mandate, and role. If institutionalized as multi-stakeholder advisory bodies, they can support navigating the complex challenges in times of multiple crises and transformation. With insights from various countries, we will debate the following key questions:

  • How can VNR stakeholder engagement processes be translated into permanent national multi-stakeholder institutions and vice versa?
  • What prerequisites are needed for permanent and inclusive multi-stakeholder engagement formats?
  • How can established stakeholder structures support the acceleration of SDG delivery, by e.g., creating momentum for national SDG strategies and progress in their implementation?

Institutionalized multi-stakeholder engagement platforms, in one form or another, hold the potential of facilitating the mediation of conflicting interests, building consensus across stakeholders to achieve joint positions, and thereby developing solutions accepted by society as a whole. During this VNR-Lab, we will debate these assumptions and questions based on insights from countries and their 2022 VNR stakeholder engagement processes. Moreover, we will also look back at VNR engagement processes from countries that presented their VNR in 2021 and discuss where they stand today, in order to prepare for future VNR drafting processes.

Format: VNR-Labs at the HLPF in New York are a lively space for open debates and interaction on concrete observations around VNR drafting processes. It is aspired to have inputs that are in concert with each other. Two countries will share their insights in a dialogic format between government and civil society, hereafter a panel debate on key statements across all countries will take place.
