Accelerating Implementation of SDG 14: Validating Workshop

15 Nov 2018 to 16 Nov 2018
Suva, Fiji

The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is implementing a project that will develop a methodology to support and accelerate implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14 in Asia and the Pacific with an initial focus on Pacific island developing States. This methodology will help governments prioritize needs and identify entry points that can be leveraged to accelerate implementation of goal 14 and its targets. Identifying accelerators for goal 14 will strengthen the ability of countries to target specific actions that are pivotal not only to achieve a healthy ocean, but to generate a multiplier effect with other goals. The objectives of the validation workshop are to (i) introduce the methodology to accelerate implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14 in Asia and the Pacific; (ii) validate the stages identified and complement issues identified in the methodology; and (iii) identify next steps and opportunities for further engagement.
