HLPF Moving Forward

The UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF), charged with overseeing the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), have suggested a method for the follow-up and review of the SDGs. They want to set a theme each year, to use as a lens though which they will view all 17 goals in a four year cycle. For example, for 2017 the theme will be “Ensuring Food Security on a Safe Planet” and will review goals #1, 2, 6, 13, 14, 15, 17. They are going to call on the rest of the UN to align their departmental goals with those themes. (Good luck with that!)
