First work cycle of the United Nations High-Level Political Forum (2016-2019)

The UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development was established by the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and is the most important scenario for countries to present their National Voluntary Reviews to the international community. These result from their processes of reviewing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs at the national level.

The Forum takes place every year (July) in New York, and since 2016 it is recognized as the main platform for monitoring and following-up progress in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. On each occasion, the Forum is developed under a theme, and it makes a selection of SDGs that it seeks to prioritize. Its main objective is to provide guidance and recommendations to the Member States for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
