More and more sustainable development advisory councils and similar organizations are being established in the Global South and elsewhere in the world. However, their work is often far from easy and their resources are limited. Last week, actors came together in Bogotá, Colombia, at the inaugural meeting of the Global Forum for National SDG Advisory Bodies to learn from one another. A summary of this milestone meeting will soon follow, as will links to photographs. In the meantime, you can read a bit more about the goals of the meeting and future plans for the Global Forum.

During working groups, delegates chose Topical Partnerships aiming to advance the SDGs in their countries and regions.
