The High-Level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF) created at the Rio+20 conference will provide political leadership, guidance and recommendations to advance sustainable development. It is seen by many Member States as the core platform for reviewing progress on the post-2015 development agenda after it is adopted at the UN Summit in September 2015. The General Assembly mandated the forum to conduct regular reviews on the implementation of sustainable development commitments and objectives. These reviews will include developed and developing countries, be voluntary, state-led, provide a space for partnerships, including through the participation of civil society, and build upon the lessons learned from the National Voluntary Presentations of the ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Reviews and other mechanisms.
