This event aims to raise awareness among Small Island Developing States of the role of skills and institutional mechanisms for SDG implementation, and the synergies between effective SDG implementation and COVID-19 recovery.
Policy coherence in times of COVID-19: Making the recovery work for people, planet and economy.
The OECD Recommendation on Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD) provides a comprehensive standard to help countries equip policy-makers and key stakeholders with the necessary institutional mechanisms and policy tools to enhance PCSD, address integrated economic, social and environmental goals, and accelerate progress towards the SDGs.
The event constitutes a call for accelerating progress by strengthening governance for the SDGs as one of key means of implementation.
The PCSD Partnership (#SDGAction12066) in collaboration with the OECD will host an interactive session bringing together representatives from governments, civil society and international and research organisations as part of the 2018 HLPF SDGs Learning, Training & Practice organised by UNDESA and UNITAR (9-13 July 2018).
This side event will convene a high-level panel of representatives from governments, international organisations, civil society organisations and the business sector to discuss common challenges in SDG implementation, with a particular focus on policy coherence for sustainable development.

This newsletter informs about recent activities and publications that are relevant from a policy coherence for sustainable development (PCSD) perspective.
The PCSD Partnership aims provide a forum for exchange of knowledge and expertise among governments, international organisations, civil society, think-tanks, the private sector, and other stakeholders on the policy implications of SDG implementation. It can support governments and stakeholders to strengthen their capacities for enhancing policy coherence for sustainable development, as called for by SDG Target 17.14.
With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as background, this meeting will provide an important opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities of SDG implementation. We will discuss how to draw on and adapt current PCD mechanisms to mobilise the whole government and enhance policy coherence for sustainable development in implementing the SDGs.
Viewing the 2030 agenda as an integrated whole can help in identifying potential policy synergies and trade-offs, and enhance policy coherence. This event aims to first share experiences with SDG implementation based on a set of preliminary country case studies and cross-cutting analyses, and secondly to feature measurement and analytical tools available to shed light on policy coherence challenges across this new agenda.
