National Progression Targets

Description of this Initiative

Each National Preparatory Committee, through broad-based consultations, would identify a limited number of specific national sustainable development targets or actions that can be achieved within a defined period of time such as five or ten years, and which could make a significant difference in the country’s progress towards sustainable development. The aim is to generate further national commitment to sustainable development and national actions that will further the transition to a sustainable global society. The National Progressions are targets and actions that are based on the priorities, capabilities and capacities of a country rather than decided through an inter-governmental process.

Progression activities or targets can range from launching processes to develop national legal instruments that promote sustainable development, to comprehensive data gathering programs, or experiments with new and innovative financing mechanisms.

It is planned to organize a special multi-stakeholder dialogue segment during the Summit Event, where countries would announce their National Progressions and hear in return the particular sustainable development commitments other stakeholder groups have made for the next phase of Agenda 21 implementation. Countries that have developed their progression targets or activities can also share them with other governments and non-governmental actors at the regional preparatory meetings.
