Starting the second week of July 2020, High-level Political Forum (HLPF—the United Nations central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)) met virtually. The theme was Building back better after COVID-19 and acting where we will have the greatest impact on the SDGs. Focusing on “Accelerated action and transformative pathways: Realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development,” the HLPF did not adopt a Ministerial Declaration, however a summary from the president of ECOSOC to capture key messages of the discussions can be found here.
Representatives of the Global Alliance were present in a series of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) 2020 SDGs Learning, Training, and Practice workshops held over the HLPF. Full details of all of the sessions can be found here.
