Official meeting

Major Groups and other Stakeholders (MGoS) are crucial to the successful implementation, follow-up, and review of the 2030 Agenda. In preparation for the 2020 HLPF, they contributed to review processes at all levels, including at the regional forums on sustainable development and through national review mechanisms.

The 2030 Agenda and the UN General Assembly established ambitious modalities for the participation of MGoS in the HLPF (paragraph 89 of the 2030 Agenda and paragraphs 14 and 15 of General Assembly Resolution 67/290).

This session offers MGoS an opportunity to raise their critical concerns and concrete proposals for Decade of Action. It will discuss the recommendations of MGoS on the implementation, follow-up, and review of the 2030 Agenda and the Decade of Action. It will also place a particular emphasis on the impact of and response to COVID-19. It will also review the contributions of MGoS themselves to the implementation of the Agenda, especially at the national level and during ongoing national review processes.

The session is being organised in collaboration with the HLPF Coordination Mechanism of Major Groups and other Stakeholders
