Just as people’s participation was a hallmark of the SDG negotiations’ process -- infusing increased ambition and legitimacy into that process – people’s participation must continue and be strengthened for SDG implementation in all countries.

About

Just as people’s participation was a hallmark of the SDG negotiations’ process -- infusing increased ambition and legitimacy into that process – people’s participation must continue and be strengthened for SDG implementation in all countries. Thus, a key aspect of monitoring, follow-up and review will be to foster awareness of the SDGs among the public as well as encouraging their active participation in public participation in these processes – from the community, national, regional and global level, serving as the “people’s reality check” on if the SDGs are delivering on their promises on the ground (or not).
