The Regional Forums for Sustainable Development

The Regional Forums for Sustainable Development

The Regional Forums for Sustainable Development, convened annually by the Regional Commissions, have consolidated their status as the regional platforms for assessing progress and exchanging knowledge, best practices and solutions to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, in line with regional priorities and specificities. Countries have continued to receive support in the preparation of voluntary national reviews, benefiting from the wealth of knowledge and experiences shared in these forums.

The Regional Forums are convened in collaboration with United Nations agencies and bring together stakeholders from across the three dimensions of sustainable development, including from Member States, as well as regional and sub-regional organizations, international financial institutions, the private sector, academia and civil society organizations.
