Latin America and the Caribbean in HLPF 2023

June 28, 2023

The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) was established by the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012. It began its activities in 2013 and achieved international relevance when designated as the main space for the follow-up to the 2030 Agenda.

With only seven years to fulfill the promise of the 2030 Agenda, countries have committed to accelerating its implementation and achieving a balance in the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of sustainable development. Climate action and gender equality have received particular attention since the pandemic paralyzed the world.

This year, the Forum will be held from July 10-19 and four Latin American and Caribbean countries will present their Voluntary National Reports (VNR) -Chile, Guyana, Barbados and St. Kitts and Nevis-, under the central theme of “accelerating recovery from coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels”.
