The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Scorecard, administered by Action for Sustainable Development (A4SD), a global network for civil society, is ready!
The purpose of the scorecard is to “provide a tool for civil society to identify the areas in which countries have created implementation plans for the UN SDGs, the current status of the plans and where there are gaps/opportunities.” It is important to remember that UN country members are committed to the implementation of the SDGs after 3 years of negotiations within the UN.
The tool is divided in three parts, the first one gathers “information about the government and civil society infrastructure to deliver the goals in different countries.” The second one, questions about the status of the implementation plans and the level of cross-sectoral collaboration. And the third one is to collect information about the survey participants.
This initiative is part of a broader strategy that A4SD is coordinating on the verge of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) that will take place on July 2017 in New York. The scorecard aims at gathering information to discuss, analyze and issue recommendations to civil society organizations and governments during the HLPF.
