“Human rights-based approaches to development are powerful tools that make us safer and more resilient. They place our emphasis on the people most at risk of discrimination. They are the best way to reduce inequalities and resume our path towards realising the 2030 Agenda.“

Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,addressing the 2021 High-level Political Forum

The High-Level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF) is the central global platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

As reaffirmed by the UN Secretary-General in his 2020 Call to Action for Human Rights and the 2021 Common Agenda report, human rights permeate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the vast majority of its goals and targets correspond to legally binding human rights commitments made by every Member State. Therefore, discussions at the HLPF and its preparatory processes need to be likewise anchored within a human rights-based discourse.

The HLPF meets annually under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council and every four years at the level of Heads of State and Government under the auspices of the General Assembly. Preparations for the annual HLPF encompass:

The overarching themes for the HLPF are negotiated in New York through an inter-governmental process every four years. For the current HLPF cycle, the themes for the annual sessions and the selected focus SDGs are as follows:
