#HLPF2019: Expert Group Meeting on SDG 16: Thematic Review

SDG 16 Hub

Taking place from 27th to 29th May 2019 in Rome, this conference is co-organised by the Division for Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA/DSDG) and IDLO. In preparation for HLPF 2019, the conference will focus on progress towards SDG 16, as well as its role in advancing sustainable development and the vision and goals embodied in the 2030 Agenda.

Entitled: "Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies: SDG 16 Implementation and the path towards leaving no one behind", the conference will take stock of global progress towards achieving SDG 16; share knowledge, success stories and good practices; identify particular areas of concern and main challenges; and suggest ways forward in terms of policies, partnerships and coordinated actions at all levels as well as specific ways to leverage the interlinkages between SDG 16 and other global goals. 

Around 200-300 participants are expected to attend.
