What we’ve been working towards
What this means
The lack of clarity over the review has meant that steps have been taken in Scotland to ensure that, whatever the outcome, Scotland will be in a position to report on SDG progress.
We have posed the question on whether devolved governments would consider writing their own supplementary reviews, but we have also secured the publication and open sharing of all input gathered in Scotland for the official review as well as the baseline assessment on SDG performance that Scottish Government have contracted out and will be available in January.
Non-governmental members of the Network’s VNR Working Group are recommending that correspondence is sent to the UK Government when we return next year outlining concerns and recommendations about the overall UK approach. Please consider your own views and we’ll be in touch to see if others would like to sign or support drafting this.
This update will be followed by a Scotland specific update with next steps.
