Expert Group Meetings (EGMs) to inform HLPF thematic reviews 

EGMs to prepare for the HLPF thematic reviews of the above theme and SDGs will take place during the week of 17 May bringing together a multi-stakeholder group of experts from academia, civil society, government experts participating in their own capacity, and UN system technical colleagues. Participants will assess progress and challenges to achieving the in-focus SDGs in the context of the broader 2030 Agenda; consider how COVID-19 response and recovery efforts can contribute to achieving these SDGs; identify particular areas of concern and opportunities for transformation; and suggest partnerships and ways forward during the decade of action to mitigate trade-offs, harness synergies and leave no one behind.
