High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development – HLPF

The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) is the United Nations’ main forum for addressing the global sustainable development agenda. The HLPF meets under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) every year, and under the auspices of the UNGA every four years.

In September 2015, the UN Sustainable Development Summit adopted “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” a package that includes the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, 169 targets, and a framework for follow-up and review of implementation. The 2030 Agenda calls on the HLPF to take on a central role in the follow-up and review process at the global level, to carry out voluntary state-led national reviews, and to provide a platform for partnerships.

Established in July 2013 by UN General Assembly (UNGA) resolution 67/290, the HLPF is one of the main outcomes of the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), replacing the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD).
