Read the final summary report here.

Background

The meeting of the United Nations high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF) in 2022 will be held from Tuesday 5 July to Thursday 7 July, and from Monday 11 July to Friday 15 July 2022, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council. This includes the three-day ministerial segment of the forum from Wednesday, 13 July, to Friday, 15 July 2022, as a part of the high-level segment of the Council. 

The theme for the HLPF 2022 will be “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. 

The HLPF in 2022 will review progress toward the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and interlinkages with other SDGs: 

  • 4 on quality education, 
  • 5 on gender equality, 
  • 14 on life below water,
  • 15 on life on land, and
  • 17 on partnerships for the Goals.

The forum will take into account the different and particular impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across all Sustainable Development Goals and the integrated, indivisible and interlinked nature of the Goals.  

In the recent resolution reviewing the work of the HLPF (A/RES/75/290/B), Member States called for thematic reviews of progress on the SDGs to continue engaging all relevant stakeholders (OP 32).   

Global Online Consultation: SDGs under Review at the 2022 HLPF 

This global online consultation will compile inputs from all stakeholders, from different sectors and regions, on the SDGs under review during the 2022 HLPF. 

The online consultation will also serve to improve stakeholders’ access to information and promote broad and participatory engagement on the follow up and review of the 2030 Agenda implementation. It will complement and feed into other on-going processes for the SDG-specific reviews, including Expert Group Meetings (EGMs) being organized by DESA and sectorial papers prepared by major groups and other stakeholders (MGoS). Although EGMs will also allow for direct participation by MGoS representatives, the online consultation will facilitate for broader engagement of stakeholders and expert input.  

Format and Structure

The online consultation will be open to all interested stakeholders, including MGoS, through dedicated online forms (please, see below). A limited number of questions will be proposed for each SDG under review and stakeholders will be invited to contribute concise and focused inputs.
