Every year, the SDSN mobilizes its global network of experts to track public statements by governments and the strategic use of public practices in support of the SDGs. Since 2018, this information has been collected through the SDSN survey on national coordination and implementation mechanisms at the central/federal level of government. The 2023 results for Japan are shown below.
The survey was conducted in February 2023. For details, see section 3.1 of the report: Political leadership and institutional coordination: results from the 2023 SDSN survey of government efforts for the SDGs.
