Section: Introduction

1. BACKGROUND

Egypt objectives set out in the National Sustainable Development Agenda (NSDA) are an ambitious agenda for Egypt to achieve its national targets and SDGs by 2030. With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) there is an opportunity to strengthen the focus of national goals on human development and sustainable development.

Egypt is among few countries which reported twice on the SDGs (2016 and 2018), through the Voluntary National Review. The United Nations welcomes the government’s early and strong commitment to the sustainable development agenda, which is also reflected in the timely appointment of the SDG national Committee chaired by the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development (MPED) in charge of the coordination of the Government’s joint implementation of the Egypt Vision 2030 and SDGs.

Egypt has outlined its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through its National Sustainable Development Agenda Egypt Vision 2030, which aims to build an inclusive, competitive, innovative, resilient and diverse Egypt. In February 2016, Egypt launched the Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS): Egypt Vision 2030.

In early 2019, The Ministry of Planning and Economic Development (MPED) has started to revisit the SDS with the objective to better align NSDA with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as taking into consideration the economic changes due to the implementation of the reform stabilization program in 2016 and COVID impact in 2020.

The updating process of the NSDA is being conducted by the Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) at MPED in a methodological way. The revised NSDA will incorporate more complete Monitoring and Evaluation Framework, comprised of a set of indicators, methodologies for calculation and links to automated dashboard system. MPED has selected a set of quantitative strategic and sector performance indicators, some preexisting in previous MPED and sector strategies and some new. Those indicators contribute to the SDS Result-Based Monitoring System which allows for all concerned sectors and level of Government to contribute to the monitoring.

Before finalization and roll-out, the exact methods, sources and responsibilities for providing regular measure for indicators is required in a detailed manner.
