The 2019 High-Level Political Forum, convened under the auspices of ECOSOC, is the main platform for the review of the 2030 Agenda. Under the theme Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality, the 2019 High Level Political Forum will review Sustainable Development Goals 4 (education), 8 (decent jobs and economic growth), 10 (inequalities), 13 (climate action), and 16 (justice, solid institutions and peace), as well as SDG 17 (partnerships and means of implementation to achieve the goals).
The Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Government is expected to bring a delegation of over 100 local and regional representatives from all over the world. On the 15th of July, the Global Taskforce will organize the Local and Regional Governments’ Day. During this day, the Global Taskforce will launch the third Local and regional Government report to the HLPF, “Towards the Localization of the SDGs”.
The Global Taskforce will also partner, once again, with Local 2030 to co-organize the Local2030: Local Action for Global Commitments Special Event on July 16 and 17. The Local 2030 Event will address the local dimension of the SDGs under review, and how to address the financing and supporting of the localization of the SDGs at both the country and the local level.
