Stakeholder engagement in VNRs 2015-2019 Four years of the Together 2030 and Newcastle University stakeholder perceptions survey

24th September 2019

Since 2016, Together 2030 and a team from the Politics Department at Newcastle University have collaborated to produce an annual survey on stakeholder participation in Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At the end of the first four year “cycle” of review at the High Level Political Forum, this paper brings together and summarises the main trends and findings of the surveys over the years, reflecting on how the survey – and the SDG context – has changed over this period, and where it might go next.

The results of the survey over the four years since 2016 speak to two key tensions at the heart of the SDGs:

The survey has addressed both of these areas, yielding evidence on how involved stakeholders have been in national reviews, and whether they see the progress in national implementation that VNRs have often testified to.
