The capacity to leverage synergies and mitigate trade-offs between the SDGs has an impact on goals progress. While policy coherence is at the heart of successful SDG implementation, making strategic decisions that involve multiple interacting targets and interests is a challenging task at national as well as local levels.

How can a systemic approach improve reporting and help accelerate action on the SDGs? What are the opportunities and challenges in adopting a systemic perspective in practice?

In this VNR Lab, participants will be presented with an overview of systemic approaches for dealing with SDG interactions, and a discussion focused on lessons learned from applying them in practice. Panelists will reflect on experiences from applying SDG Synergies in different geographies and stages of implementation, including reporting. The discussion will address how a systemic approach can strengthen capacity for sustainable development, strategic and operational barriers to systemic approaches being applied in practice, capacity needs and how the scientific community can support.
