Abstract

This is a concept note and the tentative programme for the regional seminar on "Integrated approaches for SDG planning and the case of SDG 6 on Water and Sanitation", 28-29 November 2016, UNCC, Bangkok, Thailand. This regional seminar will present several frameworks for integration of the SDG targets using systems thinking, various modelling frameworks focused on the global SDG indicators with other relevant indicators, as well as examples of national pilot applications. The seminar will provide a platform for discussion on the interrelated nature of the SDGs and for sharing approaches, experiences, and key lessons learned. The approaches discussed will provide a basis for strengthening national institutional frameworks for SDG implementation.

The seminar intends to:
• Enhance awareness and understanding of the SDGs as one integral and indivisible holistic system and the importance of mapping interlinkages of water and sanitation related SDG targets;
• Provide a platform for sharing of experiences and lessons learned from various countries in the region by mapping out interlinkages and developing integration models, strategies, and plans;
• Discuss various elements of tools and support available, including those from ESCAP, for further application of analytical frameworks for integrated implementation of the SDGs;
• Identify other possible approaches, gaps and opportunities for strengthening support, including through partnerships.

Target groups are:
• National teams involved in the pilot application of the analytical framework
• Government-nominated focal points coordinating implementation of the 2030 Agenda
• Regional and national water experts and partner organizations
• Civil society representatives, representatives of other stakeholders, including academia and think tanks
