Looking Back, Leaping Forward: Moving from MDGs to SDGs in Europe and Central Asia
This report looks back at the experience of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and, at the same time, takes on a forward-looking perspective to achieve a successful transition to the much more complex and comprehensive Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Inter alia, the new agenda will be a catalyst for new ways of cooperation within the UN system. At the regional level and in view of the integrated nature of the SDGs, the regional UN system has committed to work together more closely, to act jointly and to seek synergies across different UN entities and themes.
This report, jointly prepared as an inter-agency product within the framework of the Regional Coordination Mechanism and the Regional UN Development Group, exemplifies such cooperation.
