UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF)
About the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF)
44 countries will be presenting the actions they are taking to advance the Sustainable Development Goals at this year’s High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development on 6 to 15 July. The Forum — a mix of virtual and in person meetings — will be critical to underscoring the SDGs as the only pathway to COVID-19 recovery and building a healthier, more inclusive and more sustainable future.
The theme this year is "Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19pandemic that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development" and 9 Goals will be in focus: Goals 1,2,3,8,10,12,13,16,17.
