Mechanisms to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Caribbean

Abstract
Almost two years have elapsed since the launch of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and
the pace of implementation in the Caribbean has remained slow. The Economic Commission for Latin
America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) has identified a lack of national institutional frameworks to
support SDG implementation in most countries as a major factor in the slow pace of implementation.
This study shows that Member States that have formalized an institutional arrangement for SDG
implementation have recorded appreciable progress in mainstreaming the SDGs and in building national
ownership of the global agenda. A template for implementing an institutional framework for SDG
implementation in the remaining countries has been presented in this study. The study also highlights the
critical role played by data in planning for sustainable development and calls for a renewed focus to
strengthen statistical capacities in the Caribbean to support the follow-up and review process of the
2030 Agenda.
