This news is redirected by The Secretariat for Development Cooperation at SCIENCE from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
Two years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Denmark will present its first voluntary national review of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in/within Danish national and international policy. Minister of Finance, Kristian Jensen, participated at the UN High-Level Political Forum in New York from 17-19 July 2017. Denmark is one of 44 Member States presenting their national review at the UN this year.
Prior to the High-Level Political Forum, all countries participating in the voluntary national reviews submit a national report to the UN that is made publicly available. The Danish report consists of the government’s status report and chapters drafted by civil society organisations, the business sector, academia, youth representatives and local authorities in the regions and municipalities. The report includes also a chapter on statistical reporting by the national statistical bureau, Statistics Denmark.
Denmark’s report is based on the government’s action plan for Denmark’s national and international follow-up on the 2030 Agenda published in March 2017. The action plan and information on Denmark’s follow-up in general is available here (in Danish).
You can also access the report, together with a summary of the main messages, on the UN’s homepage: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/hlpf
