We are already two years into the 15-year Sustainable Development Goals — with a long way to go. Trillions of dollars are needed annually to achieve the 17 wide-reaching goals by 2030. And with hundreds of governments and organisations involved in capturing and reporting data in different ways, how will we know whether we’re making progress?

This half-day forum aims to explore the issues and perspectives as we look into the implementation of the SDG agenda at the local level, and bringing in global perspectives towards the progress of the SDGs.This event is jointly organised by UNDP, Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI) and the World Bank Global Knowledge and Research Hub in Malaysia.

Mr. Mahmoud Mohieldin, World Bank Group Senior Vice President for the 2030 Development Agenda, United Nations Relations,
and Partnerships is our special guest who will deliver a presentation on the SDGs.
