Attend the 2017 Partnership Exchange, 17 July, UNHQ

Partnership Exchange, 17 July 2017, 10.15 AM - 06.00 PM, United Nations Headquarters, New York

The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the United Nations’ central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), will be convened on 10-19 July 2017, under the theme: “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world". The session will review, in depth, the following SDGs:

  •  End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  •  End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  •  Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  •  Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  •  Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
  •  Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

Means of implementation, including with respect to Goal 17, will also be reviewed in the session.

Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) are an integral aspect of the High-level Political Forum and follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda and SDGs. They provide a broad platform for partnerships, enabling the participation of major groups and other relevant stakeholders and the exchange of experiences—including successes, challenges, and lessons learned, with the objective of accelerating implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

In support of the work of the High-level Political Forum and the Voluntary National Reviews, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA), in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP), is organizing for the second time a Partnership Exchange special event, to enhance the global partnership for sustainable development. The event, organized on the occasion of the 2017 HLPF, will be open to all HLPF participants, with a special focus on reviewing the work of multi-stakeholder partnerships and other voluntary initiatives in driving implementation of Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 14 and 17.
