Overview :

At the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, United Nations Member States adopted “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” (2030 Agenda) with a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core. The 2030 Agenda strives for a world that is just, rights-based, equitable and inclusive. It aims at committing stakeholders to work together to promote sustained and inclusive economic growth, social development and environmental protection and to benefit all, including women, children, youth and future generations. It is meant to be implemented in a manner consistent with existing obligations of states under international law. The new global/holistic 2030 Agenda will require an integrated approach to sustainable development and collective action at all levels to address the challenges of our time, with an overarching imperative of ‘leaving no one behind’ and addressing inequalities and discrimination as the central defining feature.

The text of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for the participation and inputs of civil society and other stakeholders in its implementation. It repeatedly frames the implementation of the Agenda in terms of partnerships between governments, the private sector, civil society, the UN system and other actors. This makes it very clear that national governments are not the only, or in some cases, primary drivers of transformation towards sustainable development, and those partnerships will be crucial to catalyze action. Strong participation of civil society in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) would represent a very welcome continuation of the inclusive character that defined the negotiations on the SDGs, ensuring that the process can benefit from their perspectives.

Therefore, building public awareness and engaging national, sub-national and local stakeholders in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs is a critical initial and ongoing step for their successful implementation. Beyond awareness, achieving a similar level of understanding among governmental and non-governmental stakeholders is critical. Hence, it means reaching out to all levels and sectors with information that is tailored to their specific functions, roles and responsibilities.

In this context, the United Nations Resident Coordinator Office will produce a series of advocacy materials, reports, publications and studies capturing the main areas under the SDGs social mobilization activities. In view of ensuring quality of materials used for awareness rising, advocacy and public dissemination, UNRCO seeks to hire a graphic designer to produce a range of design and layout of UNRCO´s reports, publications and communication information materials. The responsibility of this consultancy is to ensure the implementation and adherence to existing graphic guidelines; layout of reports and publications in English and Portuguese, development of new graphic solutions; and design of innovative products.
