From 26 June to 8 July, the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) on sustainable development will meet for the third in New York and it will debate the theme "Strengthening integration, implementation and review - the HLPF after 2015". The meeting will for the second time be held under the auspices of ECOSOC.
“We will need a strong review mechanism to track our progress towards this new ambitious agenda, and the HLPF will be the core platform for this mechanism. At this year’s meeting, the Forum will reflect on how it can best organize itself to perform this role,” said Nikhil Seth, Director of UN DESA’s Division for Sustainable Development.
This year’s HLPF session will also help to advance reflection and pave the ground for an agreement on the new development agenda ahead of its adoption at the 2015 United Nations Summit, which will be held from 25 to 27 September 2015 at UN Headquarters in New York.
