Partners for Review

A Global Multi-Stakeholder Network for a Robust Review Process of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Partners for Review - Background

Partners for Review (P4R), initiated in 2016 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and implemented by GIZ, was a global multi-stakeholder network for government representatives and stakeholders from civil society, the private sector, academia and other non-state actors involved in follow-up and review processes of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The network’s objective was to help foster robust follow-up and review mechanisms at all levels and to ultimately contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For this purpose, the network facilitated dialogue and peer learning on good practices and success factors, provided a safe space to explore challenges and lessons learned, and regularly produced knowledge products related to follow-up and review (see under Resources).

The network gathered more than 800 key actors from 99 countries around the globe as well as from international organisations and UN entities. To reflect on P4R’s journey, we have interviewed some of the network members and summarized the essence of their contributions in a short video (below). We warmly invite you to take a few minutes to look back on what has happened and what network members take away for their future work.

The P4R Secretariat has concluded its work in June 2022. Please note that this website will remain online until May 2023 so that you can still access our information material and resources.
