2021 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development
The seventh meeting of the 20201 HLPF, the most relevant space at the global level to track progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), was held between July 6 and 15, under the theme Sustainable and resilient recovery from the pandemic by COVID-19, and building an inclusive and effective pathway for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda. This year, 11 Latin American and Caribbean countries presented their Voluntary National Reviews to the HLPF.
This year the HLPF especially reviewed the Sustainable Development Goals 1 (End Poverty), 2 (Zero Hunger), 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 10 (Reduced Inequalities), 12 (Responsible consumption and Production), 13 (Climate Action), 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) and 17 (Partnerships for Goals). The Forum also considered the integrated, indivisible and interconnected nature of the Sustainable Development Goals.
