The key role of civil society in the effective implementation of the SDGs


From 30 November to 1 December the High Level Forum for Effective Development (HLM2) will take place in Nairobi. The event is organized by the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) is a great opportunity to demand multistakeholder platform in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to demand the continuation of the fulfillment of a stand-alone development effectiveness agenda

The last 15 years, civil society has been engaging in making the aid effectiveness agenda more inclusive, based on human rights, gender equality and sustainable development, in order to make sure development delivers to people, without leaving no-one behind.

A network of ACT Alliance members coordinates the faith based sector of the Civil Society Organisations (CSO) Partnership for Development Effectivness, to continue the strive for the partnership to be a true multistakeholder platform and that civil society organizations are recognized as development actors in their own right.

The event in Nairobi will be key in determining this multistakeholder and democratic space in the implementation of the Sustainable Development goals and other international commitments like the financing for development and climate justice. The ACT Alliance participants, together with an interfaith delegation, is lobbying for the human dignity for all through some key asks.
