  • JOINT STATEMENT AND QUESTIONS FOR VNR LEBANON OFFICIAL SESSION

    2018/07/17

Either Lebanon will take it as an ad-hoc tick-box exercise, implementing several short-term projects run by various ministries on a broad range of SDGs while monitoring goals and indicators with a quantitative approach, or it will be a U-turn through which a strong political commitment will be shown to address the root causes of structural-development challenges, adopting a nationally owned, comprehensive, rights-based development agenda, integrating the 5Ps. Localizing SDGs is still needed to address inequalities, corruption, social injustices, ending all forms of discrimination and ensuring full enjoyment of human rights for all.
