Consultative meeting on SDGs held
The government of Mongolia, United Nations Development Programme and the Asian Development Bank hosted a consultative meeting for Sustainable Development Goals and Mongolian Development Vision-2030 on June 25 at the State Palace. In her opening remarks, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Mongolia Beate Trankmann said, “Mongolia has made good initial progress towards the SDGs. It was an early adopter by creating its own Sustainable Development Vision for 2030 that brings the goals into national context. It has also succeeded in boosting economic recovery, with growth rebounding and fiscal deficits narrowing. This helps create the enabling environment needed to support the SDGs in future.”
The UN stands ready to support Mongolia’s commitments to making the SDV and the SDGs a reality, and is focusing on three main areas which are developing the tools for plans and budgets that support the SDGs, building strong, stable institutional systems and the evidence base for coordinated SDG-led policies and establishing enhanced monitoring and evaluation systems, including SDG dashboards.
