FRA is committed to implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. All FRA work is guided by the Agenda’s core principle of “leaving no one behind”.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) serve as a framework to guide global and national development action. They are a universal framework and apply to all people in all countries. Fundamental rights form an integral part of the SDGs.
The Forum is a space to exchange experience and best practices across all sectors. It will help raise awareness of human rights and SDGs within the EU. In doing so, they will underline the EU and it’s Member States’ efforts to meet these goals.
The Forum outcomes will be made available to EU Institutions and all stakeholders involved in implementing the SDGs at EU level. These include:
- the EU Council Working Party on Agenda 2030
- the European Commission as it drafts a Reflection paper on Sustainable Development
- with stakeholders involved in the Multi-Stakeholders Platform
They will also feed into a dedicated chapter on SDGs in FRA’s Fundamental Rights Report 2019.
