Cameroon: Civil society spotlight report (2020)

Inspired by an example from Kenya, the Cameroon Civil Society Forum on the SDGs was set up in 2018 with the aim of pooling and strengthening civil-society contributions to achieving the SDGs. A key objective and the first main task of the forum was to develop a spotlight or shadow report to complement Cameroon’s 2019 VNR. In developing the report, the forum engaged in an intense and constructive dialogue with the government. Joseph Enyegue Oye, Country Director of Sightsavers Cameroon and Chairperson of the forum, explains how the forum came about and how its members developed the report.

UN ESCAP: Role and experiences of a UN regional commission in supporting VNR processes (2020)

The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is the largest inter- governmental platform in the region, with 53 member states and 9 associate members, ranging from Turkey to the Pacific Islands. ESCAP’s strategic focus is to foster implementation of the 2030 Agenda, including VNR processes. It does so by performing its key functions of (i) supporting intergovernmental processes, (ii) providing advisory services and capacity building and (iii) making knowledge products available. A fourth initiative, the twinning programme, was added in 2019 to promote peer learning on VNRs. Dr Katinka Weinberger, Chief of ESCAP’s Environment and Development Policy Section, explains how the different programmes work.
