Learning toolkit "Policy cycle, integrated approaches and SDGs" for African LDCs and other African countries
Accelerating SDG Implementation
This toolkit is a set of comprehensive training materials – PPTs, exercises, manuals - intended for national experts – government officials, academics, UN Country Teams and others – to enable them to run training workshops for senior to junior government officials and other audiences on SDGs and policy cycle.
This new toolkit developed by UNITAR in collaboration with the UN family explains the theory and practical implications behind policy integration and Leave No One Behind imperatives. Based on this improved understanding, it then aims to support more harmonized approaches towards incorporating the SDGs across the national policy cycle: from integrated planning to aligned budgeting frameworks and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems, reviews and reporting. The toolkit is available in two versions. This first version is specifically customized for African Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and available in both English and French (please check for the French version here). The second version is a Generic one in English with world-wide case studies (will be available in early 2019).
The learning toolkit aims to provide ready-to-use training materials in support of the UN Member States to utilize more harmonized approaches towards incorporating the SDGs across the national policy cycle: from integrated planning to aligned budgeting frameworks and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems, reviews and reporting.
