Advancing on the implementation of the UN SDGs 

How is the world progressing towards the UN SDGs?

To coincide with the Forum, Access Accelerated kicked off a special blog series offering a deep examination of how the initiative and its partners are rethinking solutions to accelerate progress towards the UN SDGs.

“Unlocking the potential for collective impact”: UNGA side event 

There has been a universal call for greater collective action in pursuit of the UN SDGs. Yet, how do we know if our collective efforts are leading to collective impact? What metrics should be used? How do we demonstrate results? Can we clearly link cause and effect? 

In partnership with RTI, Access Accelerated and our implementing partners, City Cancer Challenge, NCD Alliance, PATH, World Bank and the World Heart Federation, this special UNGA side event will explore models of measuring collective impact and share experiences and insights from six years of collective action tackling NCDs.
