Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals

Shared Responsibility and mutual accountability for implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals are at the heart of the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, which was agreed in August this year, and will most likely have been adopted in its current form at the September session of the GA (25-27 Sept 2015).

To attain those goals, the agenda contains further sections: “Means of implementation” to explore how this vision could be realized and a section on accountability to create mechanisms to verify that action is indeed taken regarding the means of implementation. This panel discussion shall discuss whether the document provides for sufficient tools to ensure a strong accountability of states to the people, including the “mutual accountability” between states, needed to ensure delivery of the implementation in order to realize the goals in full respect of human rights.
