This ESDN Quarterly Report (QR) will provide an overview of and update on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in various European countries, based on a survey the ESDN Office undertook and the most recent information on national implementation activities that can be found in the country profiles section on the ESDN homepage. To be more specific, information for this QR was collected through a survey that the ESDN Office sent to the ESDN National Focal Points (NPFs) of the government ministries that are responsible for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The survey, which was conducted between May and early July 2018, contained 8 main questions, with a few questions having sub-questions, that all pertained solely to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs within the respective country. The survey questionnaire, which can be found in Annex II to this QR, was sent to 22 NFPs. In total, the ESDN Office received a filled out survey questionnaire from 11 countries. This QR and its subsequent chapters will be broken down by survey topics for the 11 countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, and Switzerland) that have filled out the survey and provided the most current information and overview of what is transpiring within their country regarding Agenda 2030 and SDG implementation. An overview of identified trends will be included in the conclusions chapter and focus on potential reoccurring themes between European countries regarding their implementation mechanisms.
