U.N. Dispatch Discusses High-Level Political Forum On SDGs

U.N. Dispatch: It’s been three years since the world agreed on the Sustainable Development Goals. So how are we doing?
Mark Leon Goldberg, editor of U.N. Dispatch, discusses the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will include results from 47 voluntary national reviews and reviews of six goals. Goldberg notes, “The HLPF is a big deal in the U.N., and for the Sustainable Development community more broadly because it provides an annual moment of political urgency around goals which are not due for over a decade. That is ultimately why a meeting like this is so important: if we are to achieve the [SDGs] by 2030, it will be because of actions that are taken well before then” (7/17).
