New York, USA

The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) meeting on sustainable development in 2022 will be held from 5 to 7 July, and from 11 to 15 July, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council.

The Forum will include a three-day ministerial phase, 13 to 15 July, as a part of the high-level segment of the Council.

The theme of this year’s forum will be ‘Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’.

The HLPF will provide an in-depth evaluation of several Sustainable Development Goals: 4 on quality education, 5 on gender equality, 14 on life below water, 15 on life on land, and 17 on partnerships for the Goals. In addition, the special focus of the discussion will be on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic across all Sustainable Development Goals and the integrated, indivisible and interlinked nature of the Goals.

The forum will also feature 47 voluntary national reviews in which countries present their progress in implementing the 2030 Agenda.
