The 2021 session of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) is expected to take place over eight days, from 6-15 July 2021. This event will be the ninth session of the HLPF.
The HLPF is the main UN platform on sustainable development. It has a central role in the follow-up and review of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). All UN Member States as well as representatives from civil society organizations participate in the HLPF, which meets under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
A centerpiece of the annual HLPF session is the presentation of Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs). Countries volunteer to present VNRs, which identify how that country is planning to implement the SDGs along with information on its progress and challenges.
