High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development 2018

9 Jul 2018 to 18 Jul 2018
New York, USA

The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) meets annually to discuss the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its sustainable development goals (SDGs). The HLPF 2018 took place from 9–18 July at the UN Headquarters in New York, focusing on the theme 'Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies'. For more information, visit the event webpage.

The HLPF increasingly addresses issues related to data and digital technology. In particular, the forum provides a venue to explore new sources of data and data capacity needs for monitoring progress towards the SDGs. In addition, digital technology provides new opportunities for the achievement of the goals, although its potential adverse effects on society could generate challenges for sustainable development. DiploFoundation and the Geneva Internet Platform were present at the HLPF to report from a selection of sessions and side events related to data and digital technology.
