PALIKIR, Pohnpei (Press Release) — The government of the Federated States of Micronesia invites written or digital submissions by the private sector, non-government organizations, civil society organizations, academia and philanthropy on the best practices in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs.

The SDGs adopted by U.N. member states in 2015 are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 goals of the SDGs build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each goal and target by 2030.

In July 2020, the government of FSM will present its first Voluntary National Review or VNR to the United Nations. The VNR is an opportunity for the FSM to demonstrate progress in all SDGs thematic areas and to better understand the constraints, gaps and challenges in the implementation of the global goals through national processes.

The FSM Department of Resources & Development is leading the charge in the preparation of the national report. The intention is to present a sustainable development story in the most comprehensive manner, leaving no one behind; hence the call for best practices across the SDG themes. The submissions will inform the preparation of the national report.
