During the training, the training aimed to highlight the importance and load that the members have especially with the timeline being the last 10 years of Action, ambition and commitment as termed by the United Nations, the DECADE OF ACTION. This was also an opportunity to invite new volunteers to the group and keep them in the loop of the objectives of the PSGD.
In ensuring commitment and a “division of labor”, the members committed to different goals, individually following their interests and linking to other committees that they are members in the society, this is because the SDGs touch every committee therefore a better pool to discuss and inform other MPs on the SDGs. However, the training included fetching experience from the Finnish Parliament, presented by Jenni Kaupila from UNA Finland.
UNA Tanzania believes in the importance of and power of the Members of Parliament, to make impact in the monitoring, review and the implementation of the SDGs especially at a time where the last phase of the Long term Perspective Plan, FYDP III 2021/22 – 2025/26 is underway, therefore an opportunity to integrate the SDGs in the plan.
