Some barriers to achieve sustainable development overcome national borders and cannot be defeated by working exclusively at the national level. This infographic on the Regional Sustainable Development Forums 2021 provides an overview of what we can expect.

Throughout March, the Country Members of each of the five regions into which the United Nations Sustainable Development System is divided, will be meeting in their sustainable development forums.
