The Working Group appointed by the Foreign Relations Minister to assess the progress of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has recommended the creation of an institutional framework for effective coordination of the implementation of the SDGs.   

One of the recommendations is that the composition of such a framework needs to cut across all sectors given the interconnected nature of the SDGs.   


The Working Group appointed by Minister Dinesh Gunawardena to assess the current status of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and SDGs presented their report to the Minister on Thursday, the Ministry said.    Presenting the Report, the Chair of the Working Group Ahmed A. Jawad, Additional Secretary, Multilateral Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Relations observed that high-level leadership would be crucial for the achievement of the SDGs since these Goals are of a cross-cutting nature, coming under the purview of multiple agencies and therefore the supervision at the highest possible political level becomes absolutely important.   
Minister Gunawardena appreciated the deliberations of the Working Group to produce the Report in a short period of time given the situation concerning COVID-19 and stated that this report would be important at this juncture with regard to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for the Development.
