Bangladesh for the second time prepared Bangladesh Voluntary National Review (VNR) with the support from UNDP and PEA to present the report along with 46 other countries at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) under the auspices of United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The VNR 2020 titled ‘Accelerated action and transformative pathways: realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development’.

Because of the unprecedented health crisis of COVID-19 pandemic, Bangladesh presented VNR 2020 virtually on 13 July 2020. The session started with an audio-visual clip-on its SDG progress and Covid-19 response by Bangladesh. Bangladesh’s VNR was presented by Mr. M A Mannan MP, Honourable Minister, Ministry of Planning, Government of the Peoples’ Republic of Bangladesh. And the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Bangladesh gave an opening statement in VNR 2020.

The ‘Revised Monitoring and Evaluation Framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Bangladesh Perspective’ has been prepared with the technical and financial assistance of UNDP and PEA to reflect the changes made in the SDGs Global Indicators Framework and to accommodate changes occurred in the global and national data domain. This year’s SDG Progress Report and VNR 2020 have been prepared based of this Revised SDGs M&E Framework. This framework will serve as basis for all future SDGs progress monitoring reports.
