HLPF 2022: All you need to know

Each year, countries gather at the UN at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) to report their successes and challenges in bringing the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to life. What should you expect as the 2022 HLPF approaches?

The SDG Lab, Cepei, and IISD—in partnership with UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs and Action for Sustainable Development—hosted an informal virtual briefing and question/answer session on the 2022 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
