Stakeholders can be involved in a number of different ways from leading on the production of chapters that focus on each Goal to being involved in peer review. Those interested are asked to get in touch by 30 November 2017.

Two years on from committing to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD) network believes that there is still no cohesive or transparent national plan for how the UK is going to achieve them.

The SDGs are aset of 17 Goals which all 193 UN member states have signed up to.  They aim to mobilise efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change by 2030.

The UKSSD network is looking to create the first stakeholder-led national plan for the SDGs in the UK, which will be presented to the United Nations High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July 2018.

WCVA is exploring if there is interest amongst third sector organisations in Wales in contributing to this plan and, if so, if WCVA can help support you through coordination, communication or networking.  If you do register an interest with UKSSD please let us know too and we'll send a few short questions to gauge how WCVA could potentially help. Contact help@wcva.org.uk with SDGs in subject line.
