The meeting discussed the key role that the EU can play towards advancing the 2030 agenda and will feed into a European Commission reflection paper on the subject.
The event proposed a new SDG-based narrative for Europe towards making the EU the champion of the 2030 agenda. This would seek to improve well-being in Europe and enhancing the partnership between EU Member State and non-state actors to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs.
The Agency spoke about how many of its studies include data relevant to a range of indicators under the SDGs, including inequalities and poverty. The event brought together 250 experts and stakeholders.
