The UN Association of Russia’s side event “NGOs Partnerships and sustainable projects: the impact of COVID-19 and new realities” in the margins of the 2023 ECOSOC Partnership Forum
Building a sustainable future requires a broad NGO partner network. The voices of civil society should continue to be the focus of attention throughout the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The UN Association of Russia’s side event “NGOs Partnerships and sustainable projects: the impact of COVID-19 and new realities” will reiterate the Russian NGOs commitment to the Agenda-2030 implementation.
The purpose of the event is to promote the participation and involvement of Russian NGOs in the processes related to the exchange of best sustainable practices, accelerating progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and overcoming the impact of the COVID-19.
Within the framework of side event the following issues are planned to be considered:

- sustainable practices implemented by NGOs;
- partnership practices between civil society organizations along as with international organizations, including the United Nations;
