Using a Global Civil Society Network to Support Agenda 2030

In Conversation with Ingo Ritz

LOGO

The Network of African Youth for Development spoke with GCAP's director Ingo Ritz about the challenges and opportunities the SDGs have brought to Africa and the difficulties national governments face in their implementation, what this means for African youth.

This September marks 2 years of SDGs; on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate the implementation of the SDGs?

"The implementation of the SDGs is very slow. There are only 15 years to implement the Agenda 2030 and almost two years have passed without much action. Of course, it’s difficult to assess globally because the situation is different from country to country. When it comes to practical implementation there are countries with a zero, many with one or two, and few with a three and four and may be a very few better. This assessment underlines the high urgency to achieve policy changes in the coming years – for the people who are suffering now and to achieve the SDGs by 2030. Nonetheless, there are some signs of hope – so it’s possible and I hope very much that the rate will improve in the coming years."

You can read the full interview on on the website here on the NAYD website.

The World Bank and IMF must stop fuelling inequality

We are a group of 133 civil society organisations from many different backgrounds and countries, representing millions of people. Together we are demanding the IMF and World Bank stop fuelling the global inequality crisis. We work for changes that are fundamental to achieving the just, equal and sustainable world we all desire. We are united in believing that all of our struggles are both worsened by, and are the product of, the global inequality crisis. We are coming together to fight inequality, which is fuelling injustices in land, health, education, taxation, worker’s rights, women’s rights, climate change and human rights. We are united in believing that the World Bank and IMF are too often fuelling inequality. We call on the World Bank and IMF to ensure that all operations and activities they finance contribute to reducing inequality.

Dear Colleagues,

Congratulations for such a fantastic Global Day of Action on 25 September!!! See the pictures here, on the GCAP Facebook page and twitter account and on act4sdgs.org.

With the Act4SDGs campaign we mobilized 914 actions in 110 countries around the world!

You have made this possible.

With this Global Day of Action, we have shown that again GCAP and partners have the strength to mobilize.

At the UN Headquarters in New York could hear and feel us - that we the people are demanding a much faster implementation of the Agenda 2030 and the transformation so urgently needed for people and the planet.

Governments heard us too - there are already concrete results of governments in Senegal and Spain reacting on the mobilization.

We’re still going through all the reports, but we’ve already put together an overview of the Act4SDGs events & impressions from GCAP National Coalitions and partners.
