UN High-Level Political Forum

The UN High-level Political Forum (HLPF) is responsible for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda at the global level. The HLPF meets annually and features inputs from national governments, intergovernmental bodies, relevant UN agencies, civil society and other stakeholders.

Countries are encouraged to review implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) regularly and present Voluntary National Reviews (VNR) at the HLPF.

Ireland will present its first VNR at the HLPF in July 2018.

Ireland strongly supports efforts of stakeholder involvement in the 2030 Agenda process at both a national and global level to ensure civil society voices continue to be heard in the implementation of the 17 SDGs.

The SDG National Implementation Plan 2018 -2020 commits Government to consult with national stakeholders in the preparation of Ireland's VNR. As part of this commitment, Ireland hosted a consultation workshop and has also undertaken to forward a Compendium of national stakeholder observations directly to the UN HLPF for inclusion on the Forum's official website.

Further information on this and how to submit your contribution to be included is avaialble on our Compendium of Stakeholder Inputs page.
