Background

In preparation for the 2019 HLPF, the Division for Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA/DSDG) in collaboration with the International Labour Organization and UN partners is organizing an Expert Group Meeting on SDG 8 progress, policies and implementation.

The objective of the meeting is to take stock of where we are in terms of progress towards SDG 8 through data-driven assessments; share knowledge as to success stories, collaborations, programmes, good practices and challenges; identify particular areas of concern; and suggest ways forward in terms of policies, partnerships and coordinated actions at all levels. These messages will help inform the HLPF, assist in planning its sessions, and serve to influence collaborations and programmes of work going forward from 2019.
