    Abstract Policymakers face a variety of challenges in implementing the 2030 Agenda. These include translating the SDGs and targets into national priorities, building on synergies and avoiding tradeoffs across the goals and targets, and building the capacities needed for the follow-up and review process. Regional institutions can play a significant role in responding to these challenges and contributing to the implementation, follow-up, and review process of the SDGs — particularly by utilizing their convening power to foster regional dialogue and peer learning for policy innovation; providing a regional platform to support follow-up and review; and coordinating a science–policy interface to strengthen the data and statistical capacities of Member States.
