This report was developed by the Norwegian ForUM for Development and Environment (ForUM), a network consisting of 50 Norwegian
civil society organizations who have almost one million members between them. ForUM represents many different fields of expertise, and
primarily works on environmental, developmental, peace and human rights issues. The report is nearly identical to the inputs sent to the Norwegian government in the drafting process of the national report ahead of the voluntary examination on SDG implementation at the High-level Political Forum in July 2016.
