Background information on the Rome SDG16 Conference: https://forms.gle/zALWZxYBKkQAwuZt9
In preparation for the 2019 HLPF, the Division for Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA/DSDG) and IDLO, together with partners, are organizing, in preparation for the 2019 HLPF, a conference on progress towards SDG 16, as well as its role in advancing the vision and Goals embodied in the 2030 Agenda. The conference will address this role in the perspective of the contribution that its individual targets can make to these ends, but also in the context of the broader considerations and objectives that bind them and underlie the Goal as a whole. It will be informed by the principles of universality, integration, justice and equality and the approaches to sustainable development contained in the entire Agenda.
