This report on South Africa's implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is based on the resolution of the South African Civil Society Working Group on the SDGs to publish a Citizens' Report to bring citizens' voice and agency to the process of SDG review in South Africa.

South Africa is one of 21 governments that has volunteered to present its progress in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the July 2019 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) has reviewed the country's performance on Agenda 2030; and the Department of Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) has taken a lead to produce a political report, with inputs from Stats SA, civil society and business.
