The ‘PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (PASDG) and the European Council on International Relations (EUCIR)  have released the firsts ‘Global Parliamentary SDG Report 2018.’

The report highlights the role of parliaments around the world in contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The ‘PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS Report 2018’-PASDG 2018’ focuses on parliament’s role in providing oversight of government and parliament’s power to hold government to account and makes recommendations for strengthening oversight.

Over 250 parliaments around the world contributed to the report, which shares examples and lessons learned on how parliaments and Members of Parliament (MPs) carry out oversight functions in their countries.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes the role of parliaments in holding government accountable for commitments to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development.

According to the report, this mandate offers an opportunity for parliaments and MPs to increase their engagement in national development and monitoring progress towards the SDGs, therefore ensuring better development outcomes for their citizens.

The report provides a list of illustrative questions for assessing parliamentary involvement with the SDGs, ranging from the extent of parliamentary review and debate on documents related to national SDG implementation to parliaments’ ability to ensure government follow-up on recommendations on SDG implementation by global instruments such as the PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

 

 

Parliaments can also advance the SDGs by translating the SDGs into enforceable national laws and monitoring implementation of these laws, among other actions.

In addition to parliaments’ role in providing oversight on the SDGs as a whole, SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions) includes a number of targets relevant to parliaments, including targets on promoting the rule of law (target 16.4), developing effective, accountable and transparent institutions (target 16.6), and ensuring responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels (target 16.7).

EUCIR-European Council on International Relations works in over 20 countries to strengthen parliaments to make them fit for purpose in delivering the 2030 Agenda.

The PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS will implement the lessons learned from the report in its parliamentary strengthening activities.
