Halfway into the mandate of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the world continues to face challenges including the socioeconomic effects of the pandemic, the climate crisis and global conflicts, that are together exposing and exacerbating global inequalities and setting back hard-earned development progress. Our collective aim of realizing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 is at risk.

UN DESA will host two Global Policy Dialogues in June (20 June and 22 June) to discuss ways to strengthen the interlinkages between the Goals under review and present the information in an interactive format for a wide audience.

Both events will feature speakers from UN leadership, Member States, the UN High-level Advisory Board on Economic and Social Affairs, and the Independent Group of Scientists preparing the Global Sustainable Development Report 2023. Each discussion will include ways to build and scale partnerships to reach our targets.

With these two dialogues, UN DESA hopes to enhance the preparedness of Member States and the UN system to respond to multi-dimensional, systemic risks in today's interconnected world. These dialogues are made possible by the UN Peace and Development Trust Fund.
