UN Urges Zimbabwe To Adopt A Whole Society Approach To Accommodate Everyone In Development

The United Nations (UN) has implored Zimbabwean authorities to strengthen implementation and monitoring mechanisms to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) during the Decade of Action. 

Zimbabwe participated at the 2022 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on sustainable development held at the UN in New York, recently.

HLPF is a monitoring and review mechanism for progress on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs.

The forum was held under the theme, “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”

According to a statement from the Zimbabwe Embassy in New York, the UN said Zimbabwe should ensure a whole society approach to make sure everyone is accommodated in the implementation of the development strategies. Reads the statement seen by NewsDay Zimbabwe:

Going forward, Zimbabwe should continue to strengthen the implementation and monitoring mechanisms to achieve the SDGs during the Decade of Action, despite the current challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change impacts.

In line with the NDS 1 (National Development Strategy 1) and the country’s Vision 2030, Zimbabwe should continue to mainstream the SDGs in the national development plans, focusing on building back better in the context of COVID-19.

The UN, according to embassy officials, said Zimbabwe should make use of some of the best practices, solutions, experiences and approaches shared by other countries at the 2022 HLPF.
