SDG Summit

The UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) will convene at the level of heads of state and government under the auspices of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), from 24-25 September 2019. Such meetings take place every four years, and the meeting in 2019 – also known as the SDG Summit – will be the first since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda.

The organization of the one-and-a-half-day meeting is described here. The political declaration to be adopted during the Summit is under negotiation by UN Member States in New York.

  • The 74th general debate ((UNGA 74) will open on Tuesday, 24 September, in the morning;
