The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) is now in its ministerial segment which is set to showcase the 22 national voluntary reviews. The reviews are meant to present the state of adaptation and implementation of SDGs in their respective countries and are the highlight of the HLPF.
Engagement of the HLPF this year will be especially crucial, it being its first, and with its mandate to provide political leadership on the implementation and review of the 2030 Agenda for the next 14 years to come.
CPDE is prepared to answer this call and, together with other stakeholders, ensure this process begins with a step in the right direction.
CPDE strongly advocates that any attempt at defining this year’s theme to leave no-one behind must be enshrined on development effectiveness, the meaningful inclusion of CSOs and people-led organisations at all processes, accountability for all of all, as well as effective development cooperation in the 2030 Agenda’s revitalised global partnership.
As the first HLPF after the adoption of the SDGs, this year must raise the bar high for the next years to come. CPDE remains committed to engage and contribute meaningfully in the implementation of the agenda at the national, regional, and global levels. CPDE, through its engagement with the 2030 Agenda with its own specialised working group, continues to assert CSOs’ rightful space in the development processes and advance a sustainable world for all.
The CPDE delegation consists of the platform’s policy co-chair, Maria Theresa Lauron, and representatives of the global south, Zahra Bazzi of the Arab NGO network for development (ANND), Lorelei Covero of IBON International, Tania Ricaldi of Grupo de Trabajo de Cambio Climático y Justicia (GTCCJ-Bolivia), and Richard Ssewakiryanga of the Uganda National NGO forum.
