VENRO: The G20 Action Plan for implementing the 2030 Agenda neglects the Agenda’s goals

In the framework of the UN, all members of the G20 have committed to implementing the 2030 Agenda in its entirety. VENRO welcomes the G20 Action Plan as a first step towards a joint approach of the G20.

If the Action Plan is to become an effective instrument of coordinating and strengthening the G20 measures for implementing the 2030 Agenda, it must be aligned with the Agenda in its basic tenets and make a coherent contribution to its holistic implementation. Therefore, it is to be welcomed that the G20 prefaces its Action Plan with principles and identifies areas of action in which it wants to make a particular joint contribution to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda.

Unfortunately, it does not take up all the core principles of the Agenda, and the selected principles are sometimes represented in a highly simplified way.Please find below the Statement of VENRO.
