HLPF-2
The third day of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF-2) under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) started with a presentation on natural capital accounting (NCA) for sustainable development. Moderated dialogues took place on two topics: from silos to integrated policy making; and reviewing progress and implementation: making the most of the HLPF reviews after 2015.
A mosaic based on Norman Rockwell’s painting called the "Golden Rule" hangs outside the
Trusteeship Council Chamber, venue of HLPF-2. The mosaic was presented during the
40th Anniversary of the UN by former US First Lady, Nancy Reagan, on behalf of the people of the US.
