The Task Team co-hosted a virtual side event with The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland on Thursday 16 July on the margins of the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development: “Delivering on SDG 17: Going Further, Together”. The side event focused on the crucial role civil society organizations (CSOs) must play in the implementation of SDG 17 (multi-stakeholder partnerships), and with that, all SDGs.

HLPF 2019 Side-event
The Task Team engages with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) because of their relevance to the Task Team’s work (link to about us). CSOs are expected to play a critical role in the SDGs, both as implementers and as watchdogs for accountability. Every year, progress in the realization of the SDGs is reviewed at global level at the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) in New York. The theme of the 2019 HLPF is empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality. The SDGs that will be subjected to an in-depth review are: SDG 4 (education and lifelong learning), 8 (sustainable economic growth and decent work for all), 10 (reduced inequality), 13 (climate change), 16 (peaceful, just and inclusive societies) and 17 (means of implementation).
