The Path to HLPF 2019: from ambition to results for SDG16+

Publication: Analysis

In July 2019, the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development will focus on ‘empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality’ and review, amongst other goals, SDG16 (peaceful, just and inclusive societies) and SDG10 (reduce inequality).[1]

In September 2019, the High-level Political Forum will be convened for the first time under the auspices of the General Assembly. At this quadrennial summit on the 2030 Agenda, heads of state and government will “provide high-level political guidance on the Agenda and its implementation, identify progress and emerging challenges and mobilize further actions to accelerate implementation.”

The High-level Political Forums in 2019 provide an opportunity to showcase success and solutions in implementing the SDG targets for peaceful, just and inclusive societies (SDG16+), and to make commitments to demonstrate results by the end of a second four-year cycle in 2023. To build on the momentum created in 2019, a ‘commitments conference’ could be held in 2020. This would provide an opportunity for governments and other partners from all sectors to record implementation and financial commitments in a voluntary register.
