ESDN Peer Learning Platforms

Based on the ESDN Proposition on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the ESDN has been organizing Peer Learning Platforms since 2016. These Platforms facilitate the exchange of experiences and good practices between policymakers in national ministries who are responsible for the 2030 Agenda implementation process in their respective country. A unique aspect of the ESDN Peer Learning Platforms is that they take place under the Chatham House Rule, which ensures the identity of participants is not revealed, allowing for deeper exchanges of experiences, the success and challenges, to take place in an informal setting.
