Governance for Sustainable Development Volume 5: Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Governance Challenges

This is the fifth book that the Group of Friends of the Governance for Sustainable Development: Volume 5 of Friends of Governance for Sustainable Development – Implementing the 2030 Agenda for
Sustainable Development: Governance Challenges was produced to share widely the papers that were presented at the workshops for member States to discuss. The Group recognize that there is
an inextricable link between good governance and sustainable development and that, as the 2030 Agenda is implemented, governance challenges will need discussion and action at all levels and by all institutions. In 2020, during the pandemic the Group of Friends convened UN officials, experts, and representatives from government at four participatory workshops on relevant governance issues.
The workshops were organized in partnership with UN-DESA Office of Intergovernmental
Support and Coordination for Sustainable Development focusing on advancing the 2030 Agenda
into the HLPF’s Second Cycle, and lessons learnt from the first cycle.
The Group of Friends in 2021 will continue to be a place for discussions of the institutional
architecture for the delivery of the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Climate Agreement and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.

The four workshops cover a multitude of issues such as climate change, climate finance, Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review, North-South and South-South cooperation, Impact of COVID-19: perspective from Voluntary National Reviews, COVID-19 Transparency Gap, the Challenges for Glasgow COP, Disasters due to Climate Change for Sustainable Development, The UN General Assembly Special Session on Corruption: Opportunities and Challenges, Financial Accountability, Transparency, and Integrity for Sustainable Development, Time to negotiate a UN convention to address tax havens and international tax dodging.
