SDGs for Government

As a consultant to the United Nations and its SDG Mainstreaming, Acceleration and Policy Support (MAPS) approach, Darren has helped create guidance documents and toolkits for governments and UN Country Teams and facilitated international forums for sharing best practice and lessons learned among countries in their implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Darren has met with government officials at all levels and from all corners of the world and have already witnessed many exciting innovations in mainstreaming the SDGs into development strategies and plans, be it in raising awareness of the SDGs among citizens, applying multi-stakeholder approaches, adapting SDGs to national and sub-national contexts, achieving horizontal and vertical coordination and coherence, financing and budgeting, monitoring and reporting, or assessing risk and fostering adaptability.

If you are a national, sub-national or local government and are curious about the benefits of mainstreaming the SDGs, or if you are just stuck on how to proceed or looking for a particular tool, contact Darren to learn more.

SDGs for Government

In September 2015 Member States of the United Nations reached an historic agreement on 17 global Sustainable Development (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. Informed by millions of people from around the world and negotiated at the highest political level, the 17 SDGs and 169 targets provide a generic and invaluable systems map for governments to adapt and use to better understand the inherent interconnections among people, planet and prosperity and to inform local, provincial and national aspirations for our common future.
