MINSK, 21 February (BelTA) – It is time for the countries implementing the 2030 Agenda to move away from coordinating the work arrangements to making concrete decisions, Deputy Director of the UNDP Regional Bureau for Europe and the CIS Rastislav Vrbensky told the media on the sidelines of the regional forum of the national SDG coordinators in Minsk on 21 February, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus has started working on the Sustainable Development Goals quite actively. According to the report that the country presented in New York last summer, the state has gained certain experience in achieving the SDGs. I think everyone needs to accelerate now. Three years have passed. It is time we moved away from discussing the work arrangements to adopting concrete decisions,” said Rastislav Vrbensky.

According to the UNDP representative, it is impossible to single out one global problem but there are several interrelated issues. This is why the 2030 Agenda has integrated the environmental, social and economic dimensions. It has also united the countries in achieving the SDGs.

Minsk is hosting the regional forum of national SDG coordinators. The forum has gathered delegations from more than 40 countries. Top-ranking officials, representatives of international organizations are expected to participate in the forum. Participants of the forum are expected to share the best practices in achieving the SDGs, to discuss the problems in fulfilling the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
