This tool provides options for institutional coordination arrangements for SDG implementation–more specifically inter-ministerial coordination. It presents mechanisms used for the MDGs as well as how countries are adapting existing structures or adopting new ones for SDG implementation. It provides a checklist of key ingredients a country should consider when establishing a new institutional framework for SDG implementation or adapting its existing one.
The engagement of policymakers at the national and subnational (regional, district, municipal) levels is critical. This includes stakeholders from the government (head of state’s office, finance, planning, subnational bodies, sectoral ministries, national statistics office). Engagement of other stakeholders, including civil society and the private sector is also critical.
