The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development is United Nations central platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015.

The Forum, which adopts a Ministerial Declaration, is expected to provide political leadership, guidance and recommendations on the 2030 Agenda’s implementation and follow-up; keep track of progress of the SDGs; spur coherent policies informed by evidence, science and country experiences; as well as address new and emerging issues.

What will happen during HLPF in 2016?
HLPF in 2016 is the first since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. The session will include voluntary reviews of 22 countries and thematic reviews of progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, including cross-cutting issues, supported by reviews by the ECOSOC functional commissions and other inter-governmental bodies and forums.

HLPF will also include a range of side events, a Partnership Exchange event, and SDGs Learning, Training and Practice sessions.

Official meeting
The adoption of the 2030 Agenda in 2015 marked a watershed year for sustainable development. Its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets are expected to stimulate action over the upcoming years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet. The High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development is the central UN platform for the follow-up and review of the new agenda. Led by two renowned thinkers, this opening panel will kick off the 2016 HLPF’s overall assessment of progress and challenges with intellectual inquiries around where we stand at year one. The discussions will be informed also by the Secretary-General’s SDG progress report.
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Trusteeship Chamber
Official meeting
Inclusion is at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the inclusive world envisioned in the 2030 Agenda will require innovation in the way policy in all areas, institutions, and technological and financial solutions are conceived and implemented. This, in turn, will depend on the capacity to draw into decision-making processes at all levels the groups that are typically marginalized from these processes and left behind in the outcomes.

This session will discuss solutions to the challenge of inclusion in both outcome and procedures, through innovation in policy formulation and implementation. Perspectives from the three pillars of sustainable development – social, economic and environmental – will be presented.
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Trusteeship Chamber
Official meeting
In today’s world, billions of people continue to lack basic needs: food, water and energy as well as access to health services and education. Building the capacity to meet these basic needs will create jobs, economic opportunity and well-being while helping to ensure no one is left behind. The session will identify how meeting the basic needs of food, water and energy as well as access to health services and education can enable rapid social, economic and environmental progress. These objectives should be pursued in order to capitalize on potential synergies and reduce potential trade-offs.
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Trusteeship Chamber
Official meeting
The session has the objective to stimulate discussion on ways to foster economic growth, prosperity and sustainability to implement the 2030 Agenda and ensure that no one is left behind. The session will present different perspectives on the economic dimension of sustainable development and the way that economic growth relates to prosperity and sustainability including sustainable consumption and production. The discussion will cut across different economic perspectives intrinsic to diverse world views to identify consensus and provide policy guidance on the implementation of the Agenda.

The Agenda 2030 calls for global thematic reviews to be conducted under the High Level Political Forum. Thematic reviews can allow for a crosscutting review of the goals and targets in order to achieve the 2030 Agenda as a package, rather than by looking at progress on individual goals only. To conduct a thematic review in that sense, will require the cooperation of many actors, including between UN Agencies and non-UN actors, in ways that allow for an exchange and an effective integration of different sources of knowledge and expertise. Including civil-society stakeholders in this process can help ensure that thematic reviews will go beyond purely quantitative and scientific assessments towards integrating context related and localized perspectives and knowledge. Including localized knowledge in the general review and follow up of the 2030 Agenda will be essential to safeguard that no one is left behind. This Side Event will invite representatives from Member States, UN Organisations, ministries, science and academia, civil society and the private sector to discuss the potential framing and set-up of an integrated, inclusive and participatory thematic review in support of the HLPF. Drawing onto the mandates and expertise of the hosting organisations and our speakers the event will take on a natural resources framing. Concrete examples, will be presented to better define the specific set-up and feasibility of such reviews and their potential contribution to the HLPF. The options presented can be further developed and applied to other thematic and cross-cutting areas of the 2030 Agenda. In the course of the discussion the outcomes of a High Level Event on ‘Thematic Reviews for an integrated, inclusive and participatory Follow-Up & Review of the 2030 Agenda’ 7-8 July in New York City, US will be presented

Shortfalls and possible drawbacks will be discussed, to raise awareness of the challenges which must be addressed. We will focus on the inter-sectoral approaches needed to promote dialogue and coordination, recognising the indivisibility and interdependence of all human rights that are reflected across the 17 SDGs. We will pay special attention to inclusive education policies that guarantee gender equality and the fulfillment of the right to education for children, youth and adults living with disabilities.

It is recognized that most countries are already putting in place national development plan and strategies aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals to facilitate their implementation, monitoring and reporting on progress. These systems can be updated to incorporate any new or revised indicators that are identified in the process of tailoring the SDGs to national contexts. This short course will focus on the process of mainstreaming the SDGs into country planning processes and the localization of targets and indicators to fit a country’s needs.

Can the 2030 Agenda be achieved without a global approach to taxes? Can it be assessed without promoting human rights and addressing the responsibilities of the rich and powerful? Can it be reviewed without looking at climate change, illicit financial flows, conflicts, and trade and investment agreements? Can it be measured with a single number? with 300 of them? or we need a new kind of dashboard to monitor sustainability?

These and other questions have been tackled by a global alliance of civil society organizations and networks in their first “Spotlight Report.” The report also focuses on the fulfilment of the 17 goals, with civil society reports from around the world, focusing on inequalities, means of implementation and systemic issues.

Key findings and recommendations will be presented in this launch of the global Spotlight Report.

In the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development responsibilities are differentiated, with richer and more powerful countries asked to take the lead in implementing many of the goals and targets; but the responsibilities are also common, requiring all governments to act domestically and multilaterally / as members of the global community.

A number of CSOs from all continents are contributing shadow or spotlight reports to follow-up on their governments efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda. The main focus of the first-year reports has been to devise and discuss methodologies, to monitor governments’ efforts on drafting national implementation plans or strategies and to identify the major obstacles, national and global, that the SDGs will face.

The inclusion of a sustainable development goal to promote peaceful and more inclusive societies in the 2030 Agenda marked a significant commitment of the international community that peace, justice and inclusiveness will be critical for the eradication of poverty and the achievement of sustainable development. Inclusiveness is the key word. Mounting evidence has indicated that women and girls are disproportionally affected by poverty. We need to strive for a world in which every woman and girl enjoys full gender equality and all legal, social and economic barriers to their empowerment have been removed. Their empowerment to become productive members of society will have a significant impact in the success of the 2030 Agenda and in the pursuit of the three pillars of sustainable development. Practical experiences will be shared and discussed with the aim to replicate and/or scale up impactful efforts, and start to identify lasting solutions.

This session will explore the process of bringing the SDGs to the national level—of adapting the 2030 Agenda to pre-existing national strategies and plans and also, concurrently, of adapting national strategies and plans to the Agenda. This process will take a variety of shapes. Developing countries that can build on their MDG experience will be in a different position from the developed countries for whom domestic implementation of the SDGs means breaking new ground and adopting a new mind set. An open, frank dialogue on the challenges faced, the early wins and the plans for the future will be useful for all Member States. The session will draw on the expertise of the Member States that undertook a voluntary national review and on the views of UN system leaders and other stakeholders.

Issues discussed in this session are essential for successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Translating national plans and intermediate targets into policy interventions, reflecting synergies and achieving the development results at the local level is vital. For the 2030 Agenda to become a reality, success will depend on effective local action. This will need the active role of local governments/authorities and communities at the grass-root level among others. The challenge is not how to localise the Agenda, but how to ‘glocalise’ the Agenda.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Save the Children are pleased to invite you a joint panel discussion on How can the private sector support Universal Health Coverage to help deliver on the promise to leave no one behind? The fact that the private sector, in particular healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, can play a role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals targets by supporting and delivering UHC is often expressed but rarely examined at a practical level. The exact role that the private sector can play is still unclear. All stakeholders must work together to understand the role that they must play in delivering UHC. For many, this will be a significant change in business as usual.

This timely event will bring these stakeholders together for an open and inclusive discussion of the current barriers to progress in UHC and how the private sector can work with others to overcome them.

Human-Centered Design is a great way of engaging citizens in innovative processes to produce solutions to development challenges.

UNDP Egypt and the Engagement Lab will facilitate a hands-on session where participants learn about global best practices in the use of innovative methodologies to solve local development challenges, including Human-Centered and Game Design Thinking. There will also be a practical workshop to understand the basics of Human Centred Design and Game Design Thinking.

Participants will explore the use of Game Design Thinking as a tool for advancing social change. Games and playful interventions have proven to be successful in motivating positive social change by altering the incentive structure for civic participation and social mobilization all over the world. If designed purposively, the outcomes of games can go well beyond content learning and actually help facilitate personal behaviour change and advocacy.

Over the past 10 years, UNDESA has built capacities in the use of quantitative modelling tools to inform policy makers, with an emphasis on policy options to achieve human development goals, including the MDGs. In doing so, a suite of models has been transferred to a number of Member States from all developing regions. Building on this experience and to meet the challenges posed by the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, UNDESA is strengthening countries’ capacities to address the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development through the use of a suite of modelling tools accessible in the web-based platform “Modelling Tools for Sustainable Development”.

The website, powered by UNITE Ideas of UN OICT, and developed by UNDESA in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology of Sweden (KTH), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-Brazil), showcases a set of modelling tools and visualizations that illustrate and assist the analysis of policy strategies and the interlinkages, trade-offs and synergies that characterise sustainable development. The event will present the latest updates to the modelling tools platform and focus will be provided to four tools: 1) Fuel Tax and Development; 2) the Growth and Social Inclusion, 3) Universal Access to Electricity, and 4) the Climate, Land use, Energy and Water strategies. Mr. Lenni Montiel, ASG for Economic Development will provide opening remarks and announce the winner of the #Electricity4All Python Challenge that DESA, in collaboration with OICT, launched to optimise the Universal Access to Electrification tool.

In working towards the objective of leaving no one behind, the 2030 Agenda affirms the importance of reaching “the furthest behind first”. This calls for addressing poverty, and particularly extreme poverty, as well as groups that are vulnerable, including, children, youth, persons with disabilities (of whom more than 80% live in poverty), people living with HIV/AIDS, older persons, indigenous peoples, refugees and internally displaced persons and migrants as well as people living in areas affected by complex humanitarian emergencies.
This session will bring together different perspectives on how to overcome the challenges of the most vulnerable in order to ensure their inclusion in the benefits of economic growth, advances in social development and environmental protection. It will provide an opportunity for government representatives to discuss experiences and strategies for reaching the most vulnerable and for experts and representatives of vulnerable groups to provide insights from their own perspectives.

The first High Level Political Forum (HLPF) since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will meet at UN HQ from 11 – 20 July to review initial progress on implementation. This year, the SDG Business Forum will coincide with the high-level ministerial segment of the HLPF. The 2030 Agenda recognizes the critical role of business in delivering on the promise of sustainable and inclusive development. The business case for sustainable development is based on the understanding that business and social values are inextricably linked and business efforts to improve lives and strengthen local communities can also have long term bottom line benefits. The private sector has been invited to share its support for the new Agenda during the HLPF at the SDG Business Forum.

Through an emphasis on building climate change resilience, the event aims at highlighting the efforts that are required to reduce structural inequalities that undermine adaptation and mitigation responses to climate change, and the need for integrated and coherent approaches in the implementation of policies to achieve the goals proposed in the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development as a way to ensure that no one is left behind. This event will open the discussion of the contributions of the World Economic and Social Survey 2016 and the best ways to move forward in building resilience to climate change as an opportunity to reduce inequalities.
