We work on the analysis of the institutional architecture established to implement and monitor progress in the fulfillment of global sustainable development agendas, as well as on the interactions that enable the participation of different actors in these processes.


HLPF 2020

This year, due to COVID-19, the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) will be the first UN official global forum to be held entirely online. It will be held from July 7 to 14 under the theme "Accelerated action and transformative pathways: realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development ". As every year since 2016, Cepei will be monitoring its main events in real time, and sharing its analysis of the VNRs that the Latin America and the Caribbean countries will present on our website and social networks.

“Despite the obstacles that the HLPF 2020 is facing, it will be a great opportunity to understand how countries establish bridges between the increased needs and challenges that will mark the post-pandemic world and their commitment to progress towards sustainable development; Integrating social, economic and environmental variables, based on the full respect for human rights and leaving no one behind”.


Nine Latin America and the Caribbean countries will be presenting their Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) at the HLPF 2020. We have compiled their main messages in this infographic. Find them here!
