Regional Forum on Sustainable Development

10 May 2016

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for strong follow-up and review mechanisms at national, regional and global levels. Previously, the General Assembly had invited the UN Regional Commissions to contribute to the work of the High-level Political Forum, including through annual regional meetings. Against this background and bearing in mind ongoing global negotiations on SDG follow-up and review, UNECE member States decided to hold the 2016 Regional Forum on Sustainable Development as a special informal segment of the UNECE Executive Committee in the morning of 10 May 2016.

The Regional Forum discussed first steps and challenges in the implementation of Agenda 2030 in the region and considered possible elements of a future regional follow-up and review mechanism. It was attended by experts and representatives of governments, as well as observers from civil society and international organizations, including Regional Directors and other representatives of 19 UN system entities.

The conclusions of the Regional Forum were forwarded as a contribution from the UNECE region to the 2016 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in New York. Furthermore, UNECE member States agreed to continue the process of informal consultations on a future regional review mechanism for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda at the regional level in the run-up to the sixty-seventh session of the Commission in April 2017.
