Last September, 193 UN Member States adopted the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, a comprehensive and universal framework based on the Sustainable Development Goals. It is now time for the EU and its Member States to focus on the implementation of this new agenda at local, national and regional levels and to agree on citizen-centered effective accountability mechanisms.
DSW, the World Bank and World Vision are organising this timely seminar that will bring together various speakers and participants from the EU institutions, EU Member States, international organisations and civil society organisations. The seminar will present evidence of the potential of social accountability mechanisms to ensure effective citizen engagement with the Agenda 2030, both within the EU and in its external action, and to promote impact where implementation is concerned.
ECDPM’s James Mackie will moderate the panel on “Citizen engagement – Challenges and opportunities linked to the use of social accountability approaches”.
