Utilise SDGs as a framework to address youth agenda

Although the youth at the national and local level was considered an important part of implementation and accountability in Sustainable Development Agenda-2030, it has not been implemented. The SDGs assumes that the youth will play a crucial role in the Voluntary National Review (VNR) and other related accountability processes.

VNR has to enforce accountability of SDG Delivery

Voluntary National Review (VNR) is not just a report but a process. Five years of VNRs have been beneficial in view of meaningfully engaging stakeholders, providing important accountability and communication tools, monitoring Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) implementation while identifying gaps and integrating SDGs into national development plans.

Role of non-state actors in SDGs needs to be recognised

Non-state actors including NGOs, think tanks, media and private sectors, in developing countries, like Bangladesh, are playing a critical role in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are contributing in this SDG journey through prioritising development agenda, implementing the targets, monitoring the delivery and ensuring accountability in the overall process. Their contribution in the development discourse needs to be appreciated properly so that the governments and international development partners can forge a comprehensive strategy for SDG delivery.

Form a Local Government Commission to implement the SDGs

The local government needs to play an effective role in ensuring that the benefit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reaches all. Thus, enhanced participation in the SDGs implementation process and empowerment of the local government is vital. A “Local Government Commission” can be formed to ensure proper harmonisation among the ministries and the administration and also to strengthen the voice of the local government.

Private sector’s contribution in SDG delivery needs documentation

Private sector’s activities targeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) needs to be well structured and enhanced. Moreover, their work is not very well documented. They should have a targeted plan of action for achieving different targets of SDGs.

Today’s Youth will Lead the Path to Realise the SDGs in Bangladesh

2023-09-25T16:23:31+06:00April 2nd, 2019|

At present more than one third of the population of Bangladesh belong to the youth cohort, aged between 18-35 years. It is high time for the country to utilise this young cohort towards national development while the country is in the pursuit of realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. If empowered and utilised properly, the youth will the lead the nation to achieve the SDGs.

এসডিজি অর্জনে আগামী বাজেটে এনজিও’দের জন্য বরাদ্দ থাকতে হবেঃ ড. দেবপ্রিয় ভট্টাচার্য

2018-04-01T07:33:50+06:00March 14th, 2018|

বাংলাদেশ সরকার যদি মনে করে যে, টেকসই উন্নয়ন অভীষ্ট (এসডিজি) অর্জনে বেসরকারি উন্নয়ন প্রতিষ্ঠনের (এনজিও) ভূমিকা প্রয়োজন, তাহলে সরকারকে এনজিও’দের কার্যক্রমের জন্য অর্থায়নের ব্যবস্থা করতে হবে। বৈদেশিক অনুদান নিয়ে এনজিও চালিয়ে দেশের উন্নয়ন করবো - এই মনোভাব থেকে আমাদের বের হয়ে আসার সময় হয়েছে।
