SECRETARIAT TEAM APPGM-SDG
Thirty-eight (38) people are identified to play a role in the APPGM-SDG Secretariat. Unlike in 2020 and 2021 where key positions were held by volunteers, a bulk of work shall be undertaken by full-time staff due to the work demands and dateline. However, we do recognize that expert input and experience are among many academics and senior civil society partners; therefore, their role is essential.
The Secretariat operates not in a hierarchical way but in a flat level of leadership structure with consultation and support. Senior members of the team who are subject experts are also custodians of the localizing SDGs project.
