Introduction

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Goals was adopted by UN Member States in September 2015. Included in the Agenda are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets. The SDGs are described in the Agenda as follows:

The SDGs and targets are integrated and indivisible, global in nature and universally applicable, taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities. Targets are defined as aspirational and global, with each government setting its own national targets guided by the global level of ambition but taking into account national circumstances. Each government will also decide how these aspirational and global targets should be incorporated in national planning processes, policies and strategies. It is important to recognize the link between sustainable development and other relevant ongoing processes in the economic, social and environmental fields.

The focus of the 2015 SDTF was to convene representatives from national governments, UN Agencies, and experts who are responsible for integrating The 2030 Agenda and SDGs into national plans and planning processes. The intent of the 2015 SDTF was to identify and discuss specific guidance for how to implement the outcomes of the September UN Summit and how to strengthen the capacity of member states for implementation.

In view of the above context and needs, the overall objective of the SDTF was to convene government officials, UN Agencies and experts from around the world to discussed guidance on mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and SDGs into national and sub-national development plans. The SDTF was to meet this objective by convening three parallel workshops as outlined below and through the facilitation of combined opening and closing sessions designed to share critical insights across the three parallel workshops listed below:
