Voluntary Subnational Reviews Session
The Voluntary Subnational Review Session takes place on 15th of July which is the second day of the “Advancing the local implementation of the SDGs High Level Political Forum” which commences on the 14th of July and ends on the 16th of July.
New modalities of local and regional government involvement in monitoring and reporting are being developed. Zimbabwe is among the eight countries that have prepared Voluntary Subnational Reviews in 2021. The VSRs put forward an innovative approach to SDG monitoring and reporting. The VSRs differ from Voluntary Local Reviews in that they provide country-wide analysis of subnational efforts and challenges to localize the SDGs.
The aim of this session is to present the main findings of the VSR developed in 2021, and to allow representatives from national governments and partners to share their reactions to the report.
Mr. Alderman David Guy Mutasa - President of Zimbabwe Local Government Association (ZILGA)
