Why robust multi-stakeholder national accountability mechanisms are essential for achieving SDG 6

A special side event taking place at the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2018. With the Watershed consortium Simavi will co-present the findings of a Global Study on National Accountability Mechanisms for SDG 6, conducted in 25 countries.

With the Watershed consortium Simavi will co-present the findings of a Global Study on National Accountability Mechanisms for SDG 6, conducted in 25 countries. Governments, civil society groups, development partners, and international agencies must work together, accept responsibility and give an account of why and how they have acted or failed to act in pursuit of Goal 6.

The findings of this study, reveals that three years after the adoption of the Sustainable Development Agenda, the right mechanisms for holding governments to account on progress towards SDG 6 are insufficiently in place. In launching these findings, the event will bring diverse perspectives (governments, CSOs, development partners, and UN agencies) to the discussion and make recommendations for strengthening national accountability and CSO engagement in progressing towards SDG 6

Simavi has asked Stientje van Veldhoven – whom represents the Dutch government at HLPF to have full attention for the outcomes of this research and to make sure that we can improve the role of accountability in these countries where the attention is most needed.
