This event is aiming at sharing good practices towards achieving the SDGs, and thereby drawing essence for creating such actions.
The session consists of three pillars. First is the process and national level implementation. Here, Japan and a few European countries cases (Netherlands/Germany) will be presented, and discussion takes place as to what are the essence for national governmental actions. In case of Japan, a case for the first stakeholder conference for making a proposal for the revision of Japan’s SDG Implementation Guiding Principle was held on 6 September will be discussed as a case of stakeholder dialogue. Second is presenting a good practice. Some companies (ANA Holdings Inc., Rakuten Inc.) as well as a local government(s) (Shizuoka city) present their actions on the SDGs, and share the essence for actions (or difficulties encountered). They will also share an ideas regarding necessary support from other actors. Finally, measuring the progress is discussed. At the event, Japan’s SDG White Paper, which is an initiative led by academics and private actors and includes localized SDG indicators, will be released. Other cases for measurement will also be discussed.
The session is dedicated to accelerating progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through deeper public-private partnerships.
