Caribbean Symposium on Mainstreaming the SDGs into National Development Planning

The ECLAC Subregional Headquarters for the Caribbean is convening a Caribbean Symposium on Mainstreaming the SDGs into National Development Planning as a platform to address sustainable development planning, implementation, and monitoring and reporting in the subregion, especially relating to the SDGs and the SAMOA Pathway.

Kingston 5, Jamaica14 February 2017

Description

The Caribbean symposium on mainstreaming the SDGs in national development planning sets the stage for a coordinated approach to planning, implementation, follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the subregion and will provide member States with an opportunity to share best practices in mainstreaming the SDGs and the SAMOA Pathway in their national development plans. During the symposium, ECLAC Caribbean will emphasize the need for national ownership of the SDGs for success in implementing the goals. This would be advanced by the identification of national institutional infrastructure for planning and implementing the SDGs and the SAMOA Pathway in individual member States. The symposium will also provide an opportunity to identify specific needs for technical assistance by member States in the development of integrated national development plans.
