The review’s methodology and approach will be discussed in detail below.
The Economic Development and Planning Unit (EDPU) of the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) and the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs were in charge of the preparation of The Bahamas’ national review during the period
from 2007 to 2009. EDPU is responsible for ensuring and monitoring SDG implementation at the national,
local, and Ministerial levels, while the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in charge of ongoing international
monitoring of SDG-related initiatives. The EDPU serves as the focal point of contact for the National
Development Plan (NDP). It has been made possible by the contributions of officers from a variety of various
government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies as well as representatives from civil society groups,
academic institutions, and the private sector. The formal creation of a Technical Committee for the Sustainable
Development Goals would strengthen institutional institutions.
The development of this study was made possible by two important collaborative efforts. A grant to the
University of The Bahamas has enabled it to collaborate with the United Nations Development Programme
(UNDP) on the compilation of an SDG country report in collaboration with the Prime Minister’s Office, as well
as on the preparation of a statistical compendium of Tier 1 SDG Indicators, an advocacy strategy for an SDG
program of action, and a thematic report on mechanisms to ensure that no one is left behind. When it came to
the writing of this paper, the University of The Bahamas was really helpful.
The second collaboration is with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the
Caribbean (UN ECLAC), which will provide technical assistance through a grant from the German Government
and the German Society for International Cooperation to conduct a needs assessment for strengthening ongoing
SDG statistical reporting and to assist with the development of institutional arrangements for the ongoing SDG
