A multi-level architecture is required to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development: with the national level as the lynchpin of the framework for action on, and review of, the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, through regional peer learning, and to the global level with exchange of lessons learned, gaps identified and momentum reinvigorated for further action. In this context, the regional level serves as an important nexus where feedback loops from bottom to top, and vice versa. This session will feature key regional and sub-regional players, including the Executive Secretaries of the United Nations Regional Commissions, who will exchange regional experiences to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. The session will also focus on the role of regions to foster coherence between local and global levels and engage in an interactive discussion with Member States, representatives of regional and sub-regional governmental organizations, major groups and other stakeholders.
