At the next High-Level Political Forum to be held at United Nations headquarters in July, France will reaffirm its commitment to the 2030 Agenda and present its second Voluntary National Review.

This review paints a picture of France and the efforts made to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. The first part is devoted to the successes, progress and difficulties in meeting the challenges associated with the six issues of the French Roadmap for the 2030 Agenda. The second part, based on the set of indicators chosen by France to monitor the 17 SDGs, provides an overview of their development between 2017 and 2022.

In drawing up this voluntary national review, civil society (associations, businesses, local authorities, researchers, etc.) was involved in enriching the vision behind the deployment of public policies. For each of the six issues, you can discover a summary of their recommendations and contributions.
