Third High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development

The forum will debate the theme: Strengthening integration, implementation and review - the HLPF after 2015. A major focus will thus be the role of the forum and ways to implement its functions in following up on and reviewing the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda. The meeting will occur at a time when the negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda will be reaching their final stage. It takes particular significance as sustainable development goals will be at the heart of the post-2015 development agenda. The forum will thus be able to advance the discussions on how best to review progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the overall agenda, and its important role in this regard.

The meeting will also reflect on integrated policies to move towards more sustainable development paths. Also on the forum's agenda are the overall follow up to Rio+20 and the Samoa Conference on SIDS, sustainable consumption and production, strengthening the science-policy interface, countries in special situations, and regional dimensions. The meeting will allow a debate between Governments, UN system and other organizations, scientists, major groups and other stakeholders of civil society. Side events will be organized.
