2021 Voices of SDG16+: Stories for Global Action
CSPPS has been involved in various events of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2021 on "Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development".
On 13 July, CSPPS staged a side event on Resilient Recovery through Local Action on SDG16+ in partnership with GPPAC, TAP Network, Peace direct, World Vision, Namati and Life&Peace Institute.
This side event was organised in context of a Voices of SDG16+ campaign where individuals and civil society organizations from around the world were invited to submit short videos telling their “stories” of best practices and extraordinary efforts being undertaken towards SDG16+ at the national and local levels, particularly in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
In addition to showcasing stellar contributions from civil society, this virtual HLPF side event also provided an opportunity to engage with the community of local voices of SDG16+ for its third edition.
The recording of this side event is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUOj9uMh7GA
Please share this recording widely with your own network and help us showcase local civil society and their work on SDG16+.
