Inaugural Meeting of High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development

The inaugural meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) will take place on 24 September 2013. This will be the first formal meeting of the HLPF since a decision was taken to establish the forum at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD or Rio+20) in June 2012. The HLPF aims to follow up on the implementation of sustainable development, and to build on the strengths, experiences, resources and inclusive participation modalities of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD), and to replace the Commission. The draft agenda is available online.
