The United Nations (UN) has urged Zimbabwean authorities to strengthen implementation and monitoring mechanisms to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) during the Decade of Action.
According to a statement from the Zimbabwe Embassy in New York, the UN said Zimbabwe should ensure a whole society approach to make sure everyone is accommodated in the implementation of the development strategies.
“Going forward, Zimbabwe should continue to strengthen the implementation and monitoring mechanisms to achieve the SDGs during the Decade of Action, despite the current challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change impacts,” the UN stated in a statement.
Zimbabwe participated in the 2022 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on sustainable development held at the UN in New York which was held under the theme, “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
HLPF is a monitoring and review mechanism for progress on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs.
Accounts to Embassy officials, the UN mentioned that Zimbabwe should make use of some of the best practices, solutions, experiences and approaches shared by other countries at the 2022 HLPF.
