The elaboration process of the French SDGs roadmap process has been very participatory with more than 200 participants. Stakeholders (NGOs, local authorities, companies, ministries) co-piloted working groups and co-wrote the roadmap which is not a governmental strategy but a multi-stakeholder strategy. They also participated in selection of indicators selected to follow up the French progress towards the SDGs.
Report on SDGs by Florence Provendier, member of French Parliament
Called « Mobilizing and structuring the multi-stakeholder movement around the Sustainable Development Goals”, this report is the culmination of the temporary mission on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) entrusted in September 2021 by the Prime Minister to Florence Provendier. This document works towards the achievement of the SDGs and serves as a basis for reflection on ways to strengthen the implementation of France’s roadmap for the 2030 Agenda. It makes a useful contribution for different issues, such as proposing to use the SDGs as a compass to guide initial and continuing training, or to evaluate the State budget or the extra-financial performance of companies, through the lens of the SDGs.
Meetings for sustainable development (Rencontres du développement durable)
Created by the Open Diplomacy Institute, a transpartisan, independent and multidisciplinary think tank, the Meetings for sustainable development (i.e. Rencontres du développement durable) aim to enable all citizens to seize the challenges of the ecological and solidarity transition, by creating an annual and democratic meeting with decision-makers and sustainable development thinkers. Launched in 2020, under the high patronage of the President of French Republic Emmanuel Macron, they aim to achieve, each year, the progress of the 2030 Agenda.
