National Implementation of 2030 Agenda for SD







-          The Swedish government recently appointed a multi-stakeholder National Committee to promote the implementation of the 2030 Agenda throughout Swedish society. The Committee will put forward a proposal for an action plan. Civil society organizations, municipalities, academia, private sector and trade unions are at the core of this endeavor.


-          Sweden welcomes the initiative by the Secretary General to establish an SDG Advocacy Group of eminent persons to promote implementation of the 2030 Agenda, in which Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden participates.


-          The High Level Political Forum (HLPF) should become a truly relevant arena for peer-learning and science-based and effective follow-up of SDG-progress. We should all make efforts to contribute and ensure multi-stakeholder contribution and participation.



Sweden has taken the lead in several areas: Committed to be the first fossil free welfare nation in the world. Global Deal to promote decent work in Sweden, but also in EU and globally. Feminist government pushing gender equality, including work to promote peaceful societies. Cohosting a UN-Conference on implementing SDG 14 to conserve and sustainably use the oceans and marine resources together with Fiji. We will do our share and thereby promote universal nature of the Agenda.
