It is becoming clear that, in many cases and in many countries, civil society will play a critical role in implementing the sustainable development agenda. Whether it is delivering the initiatives to tackle poverty or pioneering carbon reduction activities, civil society is already leading change. With governments struggling to find the resources to deliver the agenda, and with the private sector unlikely to play its part without pressure, civil society must convene at the national, regional and global levels around our role in the implementation agenda.

Examples of activities:

  • Global online platform to share information about national government policies, regional strategies, global processes. The platform content would be updated weekly with information from national, regional and global platforms/organisations. It would signpost users to key civil society activities and coalitions related to the SDGs.
  • Sharing good practice on implementation at the national level between key networks so that civil society in different countries learns from each other at this critical phase of implementation.
  • Supporting civil society in understanding and identifying their role in national platforms such as National Sustainable Development Councils.
  • Supporting civil society in convening multi-stakeholder initiatives around different aspects of the sustainable development agenda.

Tell us what is happening in your country. Is a realistic action plan being adopted? What role do you see for civil society?
