2017 HLPF Informal Feedback Session
The informal feedback meeting on the 2017 High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development brought together more than 250 individuals from member states, UN and international organizations, NGOs and civil society, academia, private sector and business networks. The forum highlighted the unique opportunity the Geneva ecosystem offers for enabling policy coherence in implementation of the 2030 Agenda and encouraging a "Whole of Government Approach." It was also emphasized the need for focusing on targets rather than goals and being inclusive of diverse players in the process. The participants recognized the crucial role of the SDG Lab as a space for voicing challenges and solutions, breaking sectorial silos, connecting stakeholders, fostering partnerships, and asking unexpected questions.
