The Irish Government supported in June 2018 stakeholder participation in the 2030 Agenda process at both a national and global level, in order to ensure that voices from civil society and the private sector continue to be heard as the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are implemented.

Therefore the Government of Ireland has facilitated the production of a compendium of stakeholders’ inputs to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). The intention was to provide national stakeholders with an equal opportunity to present their individual observations regarding the SDGs, and Ireland’s implementation, directly to the 2018 session of the HLPF.

Stakeholder contributions where collected by means of an on-line process. Stakeholders were encouraged, when providing contributions to the compendium, to consider and respond to the following three questions:

– What are you/your organisation/your sector doing to support achieving the SDGs?
– What are your/your organisations key observations related to Ireland’s
SDG implementation?
– What would you/your organisation suggest Ireland do to further enhance
SDG implementation?

All contributions received have been included in the compendium and the content of those contributions has not been edited in any way by the Government of Ireland.

The compendium is separate to Ireland’s Voluntary National Review 2018 and that the views expressed in this compendium are solely those of the listed contributors, and do not represent those of the Government of Ireland.
