UNU at HLPF 2021

UNU-IAS will showcase some of UNU’s latest research and participate in a variety of sessions on sustainable development at HLPF 2021.

The United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) 2021 will take place from 6–15 July, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council. The HLPF annual meeting is the core United Nations platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The theme for this year’s forum is "Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development".

With a comprehensive scope of work spanning the full breadth of the SDGs, UNU is uniquely placed as an interdisciplinary voice in discussions surrounding the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At HLPF 2021, the UNU Centre for Policy Research (UNU-CPR), the UNU Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), the UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), and the UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) will showcase some of UNU’s latest research and co-organise a variety of side events with partners.
