Expert Group Meeting on Advancing the 2030 Agenda: Interlinkages and Common Themes at the HLPF 2018
25 Jan 2018 - 26 Jan 2018
Room S-2726, United Nations Headquarters, New York
UN-DESA organized an expert group meeting entitled "Advancing the 2030 Agenda: Interlinkages and Common Themes at the HLPF 2018" to look specifically at the interconnections between the SDGs under review at the High-level Political Forum in 2018 and the rest of Agenda 2030, with their concrete implications for policies, programmes and partnerships. Participants were challenged to reach beyond their respective areas of expertise, explore interactions across goals and targets, mapp pathways that leverage progress in multiple areas, shape an understanding of common challenges and shared approaches towards achieving overarching outcomes, and produce recommendations on new and innovative ways in which diverse actors can work together towards these ends. The outcome of this meeting will feed into the 2018 HLPF as an important substantive input for Member States.
