Canadian civil society report on implementation of ODS sets an example of participation and monitoring

The Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC), the national platform of Canadian NGOs, is following and trying to create ways to monitor the implementation of Agenda in the country and the world. To do so, it is focusing efforts on the creation of an inter-ministerial committee that is responsible for developing a preliminary plan as a place to receive contributions from various social actors relevant to the agenda, including civil society.

Upon completion of the negotiation rounds of Agenda 2030 and the adoption of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, the big issue now facing global civil society and national governments is the implementation of the agenda. Amid that initial phase of pressure and monitoring, the newly elected Liberal government of Canada committed to implement a national plan for the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC), the national platform of Canadian NGOs, is following and trying to create ways to monitor the implementation of Agenda in the country and the world. To do so, it is focusing efforts on the creation of an inter-ministerial committee that is responsible for developing a preliminary plan as a place to receive contributions from various social actors relevant to the agenda, including civil society.

In this context, when the 2030 Agenda came into effect on January 1st, 2016, the CCIC, in partnership with the Canadian International Development Platform (CIDP), opened a blog in the Huffington Post called Development Unplugged to collect the perspectives of Canadian experts and national and international organizations on the new agenda and the 17 Goals.

As a result of this consultation process, the CCIC published in January a report on the monitoring of ODS (in English and French) that brings together the Canadian perspective for Agenda 2030 and the 17 ODS. The report Transforming Our World: Canadian perspectives on the Sustainable Development Goals was prepared by a group of organizations and scholars with a national and international focus. The report can be accessed here.

The publication sought to compile articles and short essays published in the blog with the aim of presenting an overview putting the different visions together. The document includes content addressing issues such as children, disabilities, indigenous peoples, and youth, and includes a guide to help professors facilitate classroom discussions.
