The HLPF is the annual conference of the United Nations where governments, UN agencies and civil society come together to discuss the achievements that have been made towards Agenda 2030.

Taking place from 5-15 July, the HLPF in 2022 will review in-depth Sustainable Development Goals 4 on quality education, 5 on gender equality, 14 on life below water, 15 on life on land, and 17 on partnerships for the Goals.

The HLPF theme this year is: ‘Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’.
