The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) closed Wednesday, 18 July 2018, at UN Headquarters in New York. The HLPF examined implementation of five goals in detail: SDG 6 (water and sanitation); SDG 7 (energy); SDG 11 (sustainable cities); SDG 12 (sustainable production and consumption); SDG 15 (terrestrial ecosystems), and SDG 17 (partnerships for the goals). Under the theme, ‘Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies,’ 46 countries presented their Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) and a Ministerial Declaration was adopted.
