View of the Ministerial segment of the HLPF 2015, joined via remote video from Oslo, Norway,
by H.E. Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Norway; UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon; and H.E. President
Paul Kagame, Rwanda.

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 Monday, 6 July. The Ministerial segment of the HLPF commenced with an opening plenary, the launch of the Millennium Development Goal (MDGs) report and messages from the first part of the meeting. In the morning and afternoon panels addressed “A transformative integrated agenda—how can governments, societies and the UN rise to the challenge” and “Thinking ahead—emerging issues that will matter in the future.”

Side events took place during lunch on: preparing for post-2015 implementation—early findings; more than words—how corporate reporting can help attain the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and enrich an implementation and review framework; UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) peer review mechanisms—lessons learned and opportunities for contributing to the implementation and review of SDGs; and policy-coherence of SDGs—a natural resource perspective.
