Panel discussion on “Towards sustainable, resilient and inclusive societies through participation of all: What implications for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda?”

On 12 June 2017, Ambassador Kaha Imnadze, Permanent Representative of Georgia to the United Nations participated in the panel discussion on the theme: “Towards sustainable, resilient and inclusive societies through participation of all: What implications for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda?”. The event was initiated by the Permanent Mission of Czech Republic and organized in cooperation with the Permanent Missions of Argentina and Georgia to the United Nations, Center on International Cooperation, New York University and with the city of Kolín, the Czech Republic.

The aim of the panel discussion was to enhance conversations on the participation principle within the 2030 Agenda, its implementation and follow-up and review mechanisms.

In his remarks Permanent Representative of Georgia underlined the importance of participation of all relevant stakeholders of the community in such a comprehensive and transformative endeavor as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. He highlighted some experiences from the national context in terms of Georgia’s civil society engagement in influencing public policies. In this context he spoke about the Open Government Georgia’s Forum, created under the umbrella of Open Government Partnership (OGP) - an efficient mechanism that allows fruitful cooperation among the local non-governmental organizations, international partners, public agencies and academia, and represents a permanent dialogue mechanism for government and civil society to co-create government reforms. Ambassador Imnadze also touched upon the important role of the civil society in Georgia in the development of anti-corruption policy.

Permanent Representative of Georgia spoke about the importance of civic integration and informed the audience about the approaches and strategy of Georgia to this end. In this context he also reviewed the situation in the occupied regions of Georgia, where the education in the native language is a major humanitarian challenge as the Georgian citizens residing in the occupied territories are deprived of the right to education in their mother tongue.
