Developing the capacities of civil society for a successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda

International Forum of National NGO Platforms IFP


Abstract: Civil society was a key stakeholder in the development of the 2030 Agenda. It strategically contributed with its expertise and evidence and engaged with decisionmakers at different levels throughout all stages of the policy process. As a global network of national NGO platforms and regional coalitions that contributed to shaping the new agenda, IFP believes that the level of ambition of the Agenda 2030 should have been higher. Nonetheless, we acknowledge that this agenda has begun to positively address the root causes of inequality, poverty, climate change, environmental degradation, human discrimination, and social exclusion. This has been achieved largely because the process of developing the Agenda 2030 was much more inclusive and participatory than the previous process which produced the MDGs.
