The National Development Planning Commission has launched the Ghana Voluntary Review Process (VNR) of the SDGs to the media on 23rd January 2019.
The Voluntary National Review (VNR) Process is a review mechanism and an important platform for countries to share knowledge and best practices across the globe.
The VNR allows countries to make use of the national data, circumstances, capabilities and priorities to gather reports which are implemented to influence policy mobilization. This also allows the countries to take account of progress, identify good practices and challenges encountered by them in the strive to achieve the SDGs.
Ghana will partake in the review along with 50 other countries and the VNR process will take place in New York in July 2019.
A total of about 102 countries have conducted the VNR since 2016.
Minister for Planning, Professor George Gyan-Baffour, indicated that the low level of awareness of the SDGs among Ghanaians is worrying and therefore needs to be tackled.
He however urged the media to continue the collaboration exercise with the public so that a successful coverage of the SDGs will be accomplished.
