What is Voluntary National Review (VNR)?
VNR is a process through which countries assess and present progress made in achieving the global goals and the pledge to leave no one behind.
The purpose is to present a snapshot of where the country stands in SDG implementation, with a view to help accelerate progress through experience sharing, peer-learning, identifying gaps and good practices, and mobilizing partnerships.
- The reviews are voluntary and state-led and are aimed at facilitating the sharing of experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned.
- The process of preparation of a country’s VNR provides a platform for partnerships, including through the participation of various relevant stakeholders.
