HLPF Review process

By Deirdre de Burca, steering group member of SDG Watch Europe

For those of you who are interested in the HLPF Review that will unfold this year, please find here a document from the Co-Chairs of this review process outlining the key issues that they will consider during this official review.

This is an important advocacy moment for civil society because the HLPF is the global-level review mechanism for the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) of SDG implementation that are presented by governments. These VNRs are prepared at a national level and many national CSOs influence or try to influence these national progress reports.

Therefore it is important to read the document attached to find out what the Co-Chairs of the HLPF Review are going to focus on during the HLPF Review. If your organisation is interested in doing any advocacy related to the review – either individually or collectively- it should target this advocacy at (i) the Co Chairs of the HLPF Review process – the Georgia and Benin Ambassadors to the UN and (ii) its own national government – which as a UN Member State will ultimately adopt (or otherwise) the recommendations of the Co-Chairs linked to the review. 

For more information please contact Deidre de Burca.

There are some good position papers on the review process useful for advocacy:
