The present report has been prepared in view of the Conclave titled “Four Years of SDGs in Bangladesh” convened by the Citizen’s Platform for SDGs, Bangladesh on 27 April 2019 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Since its inception in 2016, the Platform has been playing an important role in highlighting the contribution of non-state actors in implementing the SDGs in Bangladesh, helping raise voice of non-state actors in this connection, and mobilising them towards more effective SDG implementation in the country. More than a hundred civil society organisations (CSOs), nongovernment organisations (NGOs) and private sector organisations which are members of the Platform have been engaged in a variety of activities, through which they are playing a crucial role towards implementation of the SDGs in Bangladesh.

The report has the following objectives: (a) examine the implementation progress of the SDGs in Bangladesh in six goal areas identified for review at the upcoming HLPF; (b) assess the contribution of non-state actors in Bangladesh in attaining the SDGs; (c) identify key implementation-related challenges and draw lessons to raise the efficacy of SDG implementation; and (d) recommend measures to attain the SDGs in Bangladesh by 2030.
