Follow-Up and Review for the 2030 Agenda: Bringing coherence to the work of the HLPF
When they agreed on the 2030 Agenda, states assigned a central role to the high-level political forum (HLPF) in overseeing a network of follow-up and review processes at the global level.
The challenge now is to visualize how all the parts of the 2030 Agenda fit together in a way that will allow everyone everywhere to assess overall progress towards sustainable development, and to know what more needs to be done. IISD prepared this contribution to informal consultations going on in New York as the first step in a process leading to a resolution in the UN General Assembly on follow-up and review for the 2030 Agenda.
