2017 Highlights & Activity Report

The UN SDG Action Campaign strives to be a catalyst for the global movement for the SDGs by offering awareness raising, communications, innovation and citizen engagement solutions to partners across the globe. See below for some of our highlights from 2017 and see the 2017 report.

Worldwide Mass Mobilization

On the Global Day of Action on 25 September 2017, which commemorated the 2nd anniversary of the adoption of the SDGs, the UN SDG Action Campaign mobilized 670 partner organizations from 380 cities in 116 countries, which organized over 1,000 local events and actions. 84 million people were reached through communications channels.

Fostering a global community

The Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development is a ground-breaking annual event which brings together the global community working to advocate for and help deliver the SDGs. In March 2017, over 800 delegates from over 80 countries attended the inaugural Festival, and participated in over 50 sessions and 60 live events.

Catalyzing National SDG Campaigns

The UN SDG Action Campaign’s SDG tools and initiatives are currently being deployed in 53 countries (Africa and the Arab States: 12 countries,  Asia and the Pacific: 18 countries, Europe: 14 countries, the Americas and the Caribbean: 9 countries) by UN Country Teams, national and local governments, civil society and the private sector.

SDG Global Tour

In 2016 and 2017, the Campaign convened over 50 SDG Action Hubs in 14 countries, to showcase people’s voices and bring citizen-generated big data and storytelling assets to decision-makers from Member States.

Launch of the Bonn Global Campaign Center

The Campaign launched the Global Campaign Center in Bonn, which provides real-time cutting-edge advocacy support, big data expertise and analytics to partners and Member States across the globe. The Campaign team is in place and the infrastructure is now established to continue the Campaign’s efforts in expanding the global SDG movement.

Citizen Engagement for the 2030 Agenda

MY World 2030 is an adaptable platform for citizen-generated data and engagement with the SDGs. 500,000 people from 170 countries have shared their voices on MY World 2030.

Sharing human stories

The photo-narrative series Humans of MY World sheds light on the human stories behind the SDGs. Since 2014, the Campaign has curated over 1,000 stories from over 50 countries. The stories have been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and campaigns, both online and offline, at events throughout the world.

Using virtual reality to inspire and engage

Since 2015, the Campaign has implemented the United Nations Virtual Reality (UNVR) initiative, which uses the power of immersive storytelling to inspire viewers towards increased empathy, action and positive social change for the Sustainable Development Goals. The Campaign has produced five films and helped launch many others to date. It curated exhibitions with films from across the UN system to support the UN’s mission, bringing them to decision makers and citizens through 100 VR viewings in 17 countries in 2016 and 2017.

Bringing together the best in social enterprise to crowdsource solutions for the SDGs

The Campaign partnered with Influx Trust and the Office of the President of the General Assembly to host simultaneous SDG hackathons around the world. In March 2017, 750 social innovators completed a 48 hour hackathon, organized simultaneously in 9 cities (Manama, Bali, Chandigarh, Geneva, Lagos, Lisbon, London, New York and Rio de Janeiro) on 5 continents. The winning teams presented their initiatives at the United Nations and on a new crowdfunding site.

Sharing inspiring and informative stories and amplifying voices

The SDG Studio is a unique platform for thought-leaders, decision-makers, influencers, and citizens to share revolutionary stories, and engage in insightful dialogues to inspire action for the SDGs all over the world and across generations and sectors.  Over 100 SDG Studio sessions have been produced, creating Live and on-demand content and reaching millions of viewers.

Connecting innovation to the SDGs

The Campaign created a platform for collaboration between the UN and leading innovation companies through two high-level events at the UN and an innovation video series. As part of the Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the SDGs, the Campaign organized a high-level SDG innovation event at the UN Headquarters in New York in collaboration with the 71st President of the General Assembly and Tencent. Participants included Peter Diamandis, Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation and Singularity University, Astro Teller, entrepreneur and scientist leading Google X, Alphabet’s R&D Lab,  Anousheh Ansari, Co-founder and Chairwoman of Prodea Systems and First Female Private Space Explorer, Lara Stein, Founder of TEDx and TED Prize. The event outcome was a series of SDG Studio Innovation and interview films which aims to inspire innovators and entrepreneurs to find solutions for the SDGs. A second edition of this event was organized during the 72nd UN General Assembly.

“SPARK, SCALE, SUSTAIN”: UNDP’s approach to innovation

For a growing number of countries, innovation — spurred by technological advances and increased access to global markets — is a leading driver of economic growth and prosperity. New technologies and an appetite for social, economic, and policy reforms are creating new entry points to address the most stubborn development challenges. Whether it is around technology innovations, alternative finance models or experimentation policy, governments are increasingly realizing that they need to invest in social innovation approaches to better engage with citizens, establish their overall legitimacy and create the next generation of services.









The report ‘Spark, Scale, Sustain’ shares UNDP’s approach to innovation: over 40 case studies of innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals in practice and Features on Alternative Finance, Behavioral Insights, Data Innovation and Public Policy Labs.

The innovation initiatives are testing and scaling solutions to address challenges across five areas:


Pace of progress must accelerate to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, finds latest UN progress report

New York, 17 July – If the world is to eradicate poverty, address climate change and build peaceful, inclusive societies for all by 2030, key stakeholders, including governments, must drive implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at a faster rate, says the latest progress report on the SDGs launched by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today.

Using the most recent data available, the annual Sustainable Development Goals Report provides an overview of the world’s implementation efforts to date, highlighting areas of progress and areas where more action needs to be taken to ensure no one is left behind. This year’s report finds that while progress has been made over the past decade across all areas of development, the pace of progress has been insufficient and advancements have been uneven to fully meet the implementation of the SDGs.

“Implementation has begun, but the clock is ticking,” stated Mr. Guterres. “This report shows that the rate of progress in many areas is far slower than needed to meet the targets by 2030.”

Despite advances, acceleration is needed

While nearly a billion people have escaped extreme poverty since 1999, about 767 million remained destitute in 2013, most of whom live in fragile situations. Despite major advances, alarmingly a high number of children under age 5 are still affected by malnutrition. In 2016, an estimated 155 million children under 5 years of age were stunted (low height for their age). Between 2000 and 2015, the global maternal mortality ratio declined by 37 per cent and the under-5 mortality rate fell by 44 per cent. However, 303,000 women died during pregnancy or childbirth and 5.9 million children under age 5 died worldwide in 2015.

In the area of sustainable energy, while access to clean fuels and technologies for cooking climbed to 57 per cent in 2014, up from 50 per cent in 2000, more than 3 billion people, lacked access to clean cooking fuels and technologies, which led to an estimated 4.3 million deaths in 2012. From 2015 to 2016, official development assistance (ODA) rose by 8.9 per cent in real terms to 142.6 billion US dollars, reaching a new peak. But bilateral aid to the least developing countries fell by 3.9 per cent in real terms.

Progress is uneven

The benefits of development are not equally shared. On average, women spent almost triple the amount of time on unpaid domestic and care work as men, based on data from 2010-2016. Economic losses from natural hazards are now reaching an average of 250 billion to 300 billion US dollars a year, with a disproportionate impact on small and vulnerable countries. Despite the global unemployment rate falling from 6.1 per cent in 2010 to 5.7 per cent in 2016, youth were nearly three times more likely than adults to be without a job. In 2015, 85 per cent of the urban population used safely managed drinking water services, compared to only 55 per cent of rural population.

“Empowering vulnerable groups is critical to ending poverty and promoting prosperity for everyone, everywhere,” stated Mr. Wu Hongbo, UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs.

Harnessing the power of data

Effectively tracking progress on the SDGs requires accessible, reliable, timely and disaggregated data at all levels, which poses a major challenge to national and international statistical systems. While data availability and quality have steadily improved over the years, statistical capacity still needs strengthening worldwide. The global statistical community is working to modernize and strengthen statistical systems to address all aspects of production and use of data for the SDGs.

About the Report

The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2017 is the annual assessment of global and regional progress towards the Goals. The report is based on latest available data on selected indicators of the global SDG indicator framework, prepared by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs with inputs from a large number of international and regional organizations.

Citizen Scorecard: Two years on, how have people’s lives changed on key SDG targets.

  • 20% of people surveyed struggle to have enough food to eat

  • 8 key findings that can help us understand perceived progress on the SDGs two years after their adoption

  • One in three respondents are aware of the Sustainable Development Goals.

  • explore data


This and other key findings are part of the results of several pilot studies collecting perceptions on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to assist decision-makers in SDG review activities. The results, collected through a collaborative research project between the UN SDG Action Campaign and Paragon Partnerships, in particular Kantar Public and Lightspeed, as part of the MY World 2030 project, were presented today during the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) at the United Nations. The Forum is the central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals held from Monday, 10 July, to Wednesday, 19 July 2017.

The UN SDG Action Campaign & Kantar Public have developed and tested a question library of almost 100 SDG Questions and then conducted a research study in 11 voluntary reporting countries for this year. The results are representative and weighted samples across the following countries provide a baseline against which to measure progress in future years.

  • Argentina
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • The Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • Sweden
  • Thailand

Key Findings

  1. One third of people are aware of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

    Overall. One in three respondents are aware of the Sustainable Development Goals. Younger respondents (ages 16-29) were more familiar with the SDGs than older respondents. There are huge differences among countries. Respondents in Thailand (the least developed country in the sample) were the most aware, while respondents in Denmark (the most developed country) were least aware. Japan and Argentina were the countries with least awareness levels, with over 80% of the population not aware of the SDGs. There is a lot to be done!

  2. SDG 1 / 20% of the population is still struggling to afford basic needs. 

    This percentages goes up to 35% for those who haven’t completed primary education.

    Thinking about you and your household, which of the following best describes your financial situation?
  3. SDG 2 / The struggle for food is very similar in countries with the highest and lowest Development Index and it affects about 20% of the population who are struggling to have enough food to eat. 

    When asked about how easy or difficult has it been for respondents and their household to have enough food to eat, 20% of all respondents across the sample, without distinction between Low and High Developed Countries (according to the Human Development Index) found it very or quite difficult to have enough food to eat in the past twelve months. Some differences are shown, with Argentina, a country with a Very High HDI level, reporting the most difficulty ( 37% stated “Quite Difficult.”) and Denmark with the least difficulty (55% answering “Very Easy”).

    Question: Thinking about the last 12 months, how easy or difficult has it been for you and your household to have enough food to eat?
  4. SDG 3 / Access to healthcare has not changed since last year. 1 in 4 respondents are not satisfied with the quality.

    For the majority of respondents the situation hasn’t changed. But one in four respondents are not satisfied with the quality of healthcare. Thailand scored as the country where it has most improved.

    Question: How satisfied are you with the health services and treatments you and your household have had over the last 12 months?
  5. SDG 5 / More people agree than disagree that women earn the same amount of money for doing the same job.

    Overall, more respondents agree than disagree that women earn the same amount of money for doing the same job. Regional differences are shown, as the majority of European respondents disagree with this statement, while the majority of S.E Asian respondents agree.

    Question: “Today, in our society, women and men earn the equal amount of money for doing exactly the same work at the same level”. Do you agree with this statement?
  6. SDG 9 / Access to internet is still an issue.

    One in five respondents reported they were “often” or “always” having problems with internet access. Malaysian respondents reported the most difficulty accessing the internet with 11% answering “always” versus the Netherlands as the country with the least difficulty, with 61% answering “never” or “rarely”. The age difference also played a role, with the majority of respondents aged 60+ reporting more difficulty than younger ones.

  7. SDG 14 / The oceans and seas are not clean enough, and half the population agrees. 

    Argentina and Italy scored high (73% in Argentina and 69% in Italy) in the perception that their rivers and lakes are not very clean or not clean at all. In Italy and the Czech Republic, conditions have gotten worse according to around 30% of the people surveyed, whereas in Malaysia and Portugal, conditions were reported to have improved. Sweden and Denmark were the exception, with above 70% of the respondents reporting that their rivers and lakes were very clean or fairly clean.

    Question: In your opinion, how clean are the rivers and lakes around where you live ?
  8. Good Health, Eradication of Poverty and Decent Work are the primary concerns for citizens.

Overall, the top 5 SDGs where: 

It is interesting to note that in MY World 2015, with a much bigger sample size, the top issues of concern were Education, Healthcare, Jobs, Honest & Responsive Government. People are still choosing the same top issues two years on! After good health, the top concerns change for women and men – for women being “No poverty” and men being more concerned with “Decent Work and Economic Growth”. Quality Education also made it as a top concern in Argentina.

Methodological Note

In total, 7,772 respondents took part in the survey in 11 countries, ranging from 350 in Denmark to 1,011 in Czech Republic. Quotas were set by age, gender and region in each country. Respondents were sampled from Lightspeed and TNS online and mobile access panels. Data is weighted by age, gender, and region in each country. Cross-country comparison is based on additional weights by country population size

In other words: assuming probability sample, for a question response of 49%, we can say that in 95 out of 100 surveys, the true value (which would be obtained if the entire population were asked the question) lies between 46% and 52%.

Security, justice, education and health rank as the most urgent issues for the people in Somalia

In a consultation recently conducted in Somalia, and despite the severe challenges the country is facing, most people perceived their situation in the past 12 months has improved in the country. Yet the report shows that greater attention and significant improvements must be made in security, justice, education, and health.  

The recently implemented e-consultation, a coordinated effort between the Federal Government of Somalia and UNDP, supported by the SDG Action Campaign, finds that SDG1 – poverty reduction, SDG 2 – food security and nutrition, SDG 3 – health & well-being, and SDG 4 – education, are among those goals in which progress is most notably perceived. Lowest in this ranking are SDG 11 – making cities inclusive, safe and sustainable, SDG 16 – promoting sustainable consumption and production, and SDG 12 – ensuring good and inclusive governance.

The preferred options to tackle these issues and achieve these goals: strengthening of national systems and developing clear strategies and plans. 

Cultural Barriers preventing women´s equal participation in decision making


That “women can bring leadership and value to development, when equally represented” was agreed among the majority of participants. The major perceived factor  preventing women’s equal participation in development in Somalia: the existence of cultural barriers, followed by lack of awareness about women’s rights and discrimination.

Why is this relevant?

This report harnesses the voices of a wide number of Somali people, their priorities and expectations, to put forward the key areas for investment in order to achieve the Goals. The initiative was specifically implemented at a first stage with the hope for furthering women’s inclusiveness and give the Federal Government of Somalia a better understanding of what is important to its citizens and the basis to create a strategy for implementing the SDGs.


Making the people´s voices count 

Consultations allow people to participate effectively in raising their voices to their governments on priorities and on the preferred methods by which these Goals can be achieved and holding them accountable. Through this process we learned some key lessons that will help us better implement these surveys in the future:

  • Consultations are a key tool to better understand people’s perceptions and consider them in planning processes, monitoring implementation of programmes and projects by asking people about their perceptions on service delivery.
  • In order to do this, it is key to reflect what are the findings expected from such a survey: what do we want to listen to? This will help us answer important questions such as: Should the consultation be conducted at a national o local level? What segments of the population do we want to engage? what are their preferred or available options to reach out? Should civil society be engaged?
  • A consultation can support and strengthen an ongoing process and be a useful exercise for the planning and implementation of government plans. Moreover, these exercises are key to improve State legitimacy and build strong institutions.
  • Nationally-owned designed processes are much stronger when linked to global initiatives.

Women’s Economic Empowerment Citizen Survey Report

In January 2016, the UN Secretary-General launched the High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment, created to provide thought leadership and mobilize concrete actions aimed at closing economic gender gaps that persist around the world, therefore contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The High-Level Panel committed to launching a report and action plan by the September 2016 UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting. This report harnessed the best ideas and insights collected during the current evidence gathering and global consultation period to put forward an ambitious vision which will motivate and persuade global decision makers to create a cohesive strategy for implementing the targets and goals around women’s economic empowerment in Agenda 2030. Throughout this journey, there was a requirement to engage with organizations, NGOs, the rural and urban poor, young people and civil society so they are part of a conversation that builds momentum, buzz and political will for this ambitious agenda for women’s economic empowerment.

The creation of this citizen survey instrument at http://empowerwomen.myworld2030.org and the SMS version in partnership with U-report was to help meet this challenge and to engage people all over the world, especially women, to better understand their subjective experiences and views about priority areas needing attention to ensure women’s full economic inclusion and empowerment. The findings of the citizen survey were shared with the High-Level Panel for their consideration in the run up to UNGA 2016. This final report draws on the correlations between the citizen survey findings and the report published by the HLP in September 2016.


World’s most marginalized still left behind by global development priorities: UNDP report

Source: Originally published on UNDP

Millions of people are not benefiting from progress, with the gap set to widen unless deep-rooted development barriers, including discrimination and unequal political participation, are tackled.

Stockholm – A quarter-century of impressive human development progress continues to leave many people behind, with systemic, often unmeasured, barriers to catching up. A stronger focus on those excluded and on actions to dismantle these barriers is urgently needed to ensure sustainable human development for all.

These are the findings of the ‘Human Development Report 2016, entitled Human Development for Everyone’, released by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The report finds that although average human development improved significantly across all regions from 1990 to 2015, one in three people worldwide continue to live in low levels of human development, as measured by the Human Development Index.

“Leaving no one behind needs to become the way we operate as a global community. In order to overcome the barriers that hamper both human development and progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, inclusiveness must guide policy choices,” said Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, speaking at the launch of the report in Stockholm today, alongside UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and the report’s lead author and Director of the Human Development Report Office, Selim Jahan.

“The world has come a long way in rolling back extreme poverty, in improving access to education, health and sanitation, and in expanding possibilities for women and girls,” said Helen Clark. “But those gains are a prelude to the next, possibly tougher challenge, to ensure the benefits of global progress reach everyone.”

This is a concern in developed countries too, where poverty and exclusion are also a challenge, with over 300 million people – including more than one-third of all children – living in relative poverty.

Left behind and unable to catch up: systemic discrimination against women, indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities, among others

The report notes that not only are deprivations high, but disadvantages disproportionately affect some groups.

“We place too much attention on national averages, which often mask enormous variations in people’s lives,” stated Selim Jahan. “In order to advance, we need to examine more closely not just what has been achieved, but also who has been excluded and why.”

The report shows that in almost every country, several groups face disadvantages that often overlap and reinforce each other, increasing vulnerability, widening the progress gap across generations, and making it harder to catch up as the world moves on.

Women and girls, rural dwellers, indigenous peoples, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, migrants and refugees, and the LGBTI community are among those systematically excluded by barriers that are not purely economic, but political, social and cultural as well.

In the case of women, the largest of these groups, the report notes that while global gender disparities are narrowing slowly, longstanding patters of exclusion and lack of empowerment for women and girls remain pressing challenges.

Women tend to be poorer, earn less, and have fewer opportunities in most aspects of life than men. In 100 countries, women are legally excluded from some jobs because of their gender, and in 18 countries, women need their husband’s approval to work. Dangerous practices like female genital mutilation and forced marriage continue.

Populations living in rural areas also face multiple barriers. For instance, children from poor rural households attending school are less likely to be learning reading, writing and mathematics.

Moreover, migrants and refugees often face barriers to work, education and political participation and more than 250 million people in the world face discrimination on the basis of their ethnicity, the report notes among other examples.

It is time to face up to deep-rooted barriers to development

“By eliminating deep, persistent, discriminatory social norms and laws, and addressing the unequal access to political participation, which have hindered progress for so many, poverty can be eradicated and a peaceful, just, and sustainable development can be achieved for all,” Helen Clark said.

Marginalized groups often have limited opportunities to influence the institutions and policies that determine their lives. Changing this is central to breaking the vicious circle of exclusion and deprivation.

For example, indigenous peoples account for five percent of the world’s population, but 15 percent of people living in poverty. And members of the LGBTI community cannot actively advocate for their rights when same-sex acts between men are illegal in more than 70 countries.

The report calls for far greater attention to empowering the most marginalized in society, and recognizes the importance of giving them greater voice in decision-making processes.

The report also calls for a more refined analysis to inform actions, including making a shift toward assessing progress in such areas as participation and autonomy. Key data, disaggregated for characteristics such as place, gender, socioeconomic status and ethnicity, is vital to know who is being left behind.

Moreover, the report warns, key development metrics can overstate progress when they focus on the quantity, rather than the quality, of development. For instance, girls’ enrolment in primary education has increased, but in half of 53 developing countries with data, the majority of adult women who completed four to six years of primary school are illiterate.

Human development for everyone is attainable

“Despite progress gaps, universal human development is attainable,” said Selim Jahan. “Over the last decades, we have witnessed achievements in human development that were once thought impossible.”

Since 1990, one billion people have escaped extreme poverty, and women’s empowerment has become a mainstream issue: while as recently as the 1990s, very few countries legally protected women from domestic violence, today, 127 countries do.

The report stresses the importance of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to build on these gains, noting that the agenda and human development approach are mutually reinforcing.

The report includes recommendations to reorient policies to ensure progress reaches those furthest behind, and urges reforms of global markets and global institutions to make them more equitable and representative.

Programa de Embajadores Perú Agenda 2030: Por el Desarrollo Sostenible y el Mundo que Queremos

Written by: Rosario del Pilar Díaz Garavito

La definición de la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible y los 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible contenidos en ella, dejan grandes desafíos para la comunidad global que requieren la acción y articulación de los diferentes sectores, incluida la ciudadanía y la sociedad civil organizada para alcanzar el desarrollo sostenible al 2030.

En este contexto The Millennials Movement organización liderada por jóvenes, establecida en Perú, miembro del Grupo de Políticas Estratégicas de la Plataforma El Mundo que Queremos y aliada de la Campaña de Acción por los ODS para la facilitación de la encuesta Mi Mundo 2030, en Agosto del 2016 con la colaboración de JCI Perú, lanzó el Programa de Embajadores Perú Agenda 2030, en su edición piloto, con el objetivo de: “Promover la participación educada de las Organizaciones de la Sociedad Civil – OSC, en los procesos de promoción, sensibilización, implementación y monitoreo ciudadano de la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible, y el involucramiento activo de las y los ciudadanos de sus comunidades en los procesos mencionados líneas arriba.”


JCI Lima

Es así que durante los meses de Agosto y Diciembre del 2016, el Programa de Embajadores Perú Agenda 2030, aperturó espacios de fortalecimiento del proceso de construcción de capacidades, diálogo, articulación, toma de acciones concretas y sistematización de data relevante en el marco de la implementación de la Agenda 2030 y los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. El programa contó con 5 etapas para su ejecución: 1. Convocatoria y Selección, 2. Capacitación y Evaluación, 3. Implementación y Difusión, 4. Sistematización y 5. Certificación.  Así mismo la Etapa de Implementación contó con 5 actividades:

  1. Comunidad 2030: Enfocada en utilizar los espacios públicos como espacios de encuentro y discusión ciudadana para el desarrollo sostenible.
  2. Impactando desde mi esfera de acción: Mediante esta actividad las organizaciones participantes del programa pudieron articular sus objetivos organizacionales con los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible, logrando visualizar sus contribuciones con la Agenda desde sus respectivas esferas de acción.
  3. Mi ODS Prioritario: Esta actividad promovió la articulación de los alcances de la Agenda 2030 con el contexto local y la identificación de las prioridades locales.
  4. Conferencias y talleres: Se promovió espacios de conocimiento y discusión para propuestas innovadoras que contribuyan con la implementación de la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible.
  5. Facilitación de la Encuesta Mi Mundo 2030: Mediante la encuesta se facilitó la participación de las y los ciudadanos en el proceso de priorización y monitoreo sobre la implementación de la Agenda a nivel local. Proporcionando data relevante para diferentes actores sociales y llevando las voces de las y los ciudadanos peruanos ante Naciones Unidas y los líderes mundiales.


Fueron 20 organizaciones de la sociedad civil localizadas en 16 regiones del Perú (Ancash, Arequipa, Callao, Cajamarca, Cusco, Huánuco, Ica, Junín, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Lima,  Pasco, Puno, San Martín, Tacna y Ucayali), las cuales desarrollaron 57 actividades en el marco del programa y 162 miembros de estas organizaciones que luego de las etapas de capacitación y evaluación se convirtieron en “Embajadores Ciudadanos para la Agenda 2030” e involucraron a los ciudadanos de su comunidad en el proceso país al 2030. En este contexto la idea de “diplomacia ciudadana” como un camino posible para hacer de los ciudadanos de todo el globo, protagonistas del desarrollo sostenible al 2030, se convierte en una realidad tangible y con resultados de impacto. Podemos concluir refiriendo que El Programa de Embajadores Perú Agenda 2030 dejo en claro que la Sociedad Civil Organizada puede sumar y visualizar sus contribuciones en el proceso país 2030, como aportes relevantes.

2015 Campaign Report

2015 was a culminating year for many global processes led by the United Nations. The MDGs came to an end, and so, after three years of consultations and negotiations, the new Agenda 2030 finally became a highly applauded reality by Member States, Civil Society, and people around the world. In particular for United Nations Millennium Campaign (UNMC), 2015 meant the end of an era and mandate and the conversion into a new phase as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Action Campaign (the Campaign).

On September 25th, 2015, countries ratified the new global Sustainable Development Agenda. The Campaign paid homage to the millions of people who helped build the agenda by sharing their stories during the United Nations General Assembly at the We the Peoples Hub.

In October 2015, the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon mandated the new Campaign to serve as a catalyst to rally stakeholder engagement, and to support a coherent and integrated approach around ensuring the widest possible effort to take action, encouraging active participation in the SDG implementation process, and offering a wide-angle lens reflecting citizen sentiment and feedback on the progress towards achieving the goals from their perspectives.
