WEDO AT HLPF 2016
The High-Level Political Forum, the U.N.’s key mechanism for tracking progress on the new Sustainable Development Goals, will be held from 11-20 July 2016 in New York.
The Forum, which adopts a Ministerial Declaration, is expected to provide political leadership, guidance and recommendations on the 2030 Agenda’s implementation and follow-up; keep track of progress of the SDGs; spur coherent policies informed by evidence, science and country experiences; as well as address new and emerging issues.
WEDO, as part of the Women’s Major Group, calls for gender equality, the realization of women’s human rights and the empowerment of women as essential and cross-cutting to the implementation of all the SDGs.
WEDO will be leading and participating in a range of side events, training sessions and actions to ensure that systemic causes of ‘being left behind’ are addressed for real transformational change. Keep up to date on our latest events here and on the Women’s Major Group Facebook page.
