High-level Political Forum 2021 Debrief
As the 2021 HLPF approaches, there’s cause for hope and concern. Approved vaccines are blunting COVID case numbers in some parts of the world; in others, shots are a rare or non-existent treasure. Economic relief has flowed to some people and environmentally sustainable sectors, but dollars have also gone to high-polluting industries while missing marginalized groups.
With a world reeling from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19, how will the HLPF build momentum for the 2030 Agenda and bolster commitments to Leave No One Behind?
The International Institute for Sustainable Development invites you to a panel discussion and Q&A session the day after the Forum closes, answering:
- How did the second virtual HLPF go?
- What challenges were identified and what themes emerged for moving forward with SDG implementation as we “recover” from the global pandemic?
- Where does the 2030 Agenda go from here?
IISD’s team of experts will provide a brief snapshot of the HLPF’s proceedings and challenges in the coming year.
