Briefing on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda 2030 for Members of AJK Legislative Assembly
12th February 2019, Muzaffarabad.
The briefing aims to sensitize the members on core issues identified under the SDGs and how effectively they can contribute and ensure the implementation of the 2030 agenda. The sessions also focus on the progress of the targets identified by the AJK Planning department for the period in consultation with the Federal Planning Commission. Given the political environment and structure of AJKLA, majority of the Members are part of cabinet or hold treasury position, which limits their participation in the legislative business. AJKLA was the only Assembly that had not notified a taskforce since its election in 2015, which was one of the reasons why it was essential that the Members especially from opposition or Chairs of relevant committees were sensitized regarding the need for effective oversight in the implementation of the SG targets identified by their government.
