The CNCPS is the Argentinean institution that coordinates the implementation of the Agenda 2030. This case describes the framework generated as well as future actions on Education for the SDGs.
The National Council for the Coordination of Social Policies (CNCPS) is the Argentine coordinator for the national implementation and monitoring of the 2030 Agenda. Its implementing strategy is focused on mobilizing different types of resources and deepening multi-stakeholder and multi-level alliances. It is about advancing with the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, contributing to the strengthening of a regional and global integration that in turn is a social, productive and democratic integration.
With academia, CNCPS has cooperation agreements established through agreements with both public university and private sectors. In the first case, through the agreement signed in February 2017, with the National Interuniversity Council in which both pledged to carry out collaborative efforts. In the second, through the agreement signed in November 2018 with the Council of Rectors of Private Universities, the coordination and integration of initiatives that contribute to the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda was established.
Given this framework the CNCPS since 2020 is implementing an approach that implies the incorporation of the Agenda 2030 to the university’s activities. This process starts with the signature of framework cooperation agreements w hich is the main scope is to coordinate and integrate initiatives of their respective institutional competencies that contribute to the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in our country and its corresponding Goals.
In addition to the signature, we expect to coordinate academic activities with other actors such as NGO’s and non-formal education institutions. Also collaborate into joint initiatives with local governments for the development of public policies for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Within this proposal the involvement of the universities will allow the development of public policies in local governments related to the SDGs, supported by the productive sector.
