Martin Sajdik, President of ECOSOC, in conversation with HLPF 2015 delegates from Austria, Brazil and Egypt.

The 2015 meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) continued on Wednesday, 1 July. Moderated discussions addressed: “The SAMOA Pathway—translating vision to action”; “Reaching out to the world—communicating the agenda”; and “Reaching out to the world—training and learning for sustainable development.” During lunch, side events took place on: human mobility in the context of the post-2015 development agenda—pespectives from the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD); transparency, accountability and participation—building a post-2015 review architecture fit for purpose; integrating three levels of accountability for a robust and effective review mechanism at HLPF; and the Global Sustainable Development Report (GDSR) 2015—highlights and the way forward.
