Guiding for Accountability: Recommendations for VNR Guidelines

16th October 2017

Together 2030 launched a new paper with concrete recommendations on how to improve the current VNR guidelines. The paper, a collective effort by the members of the Initiative, was made possible through a partnership with World Vision.

Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) are a critical element of the follow-up and review mechanisms for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs. To support the reporting process, the United Nations Secretary General has been requested to provide a set of voluntary common reporting guidelines for VNRs, which were published in January
