Summary: 
Plenary segment: National perspectives, lessons learnt, and best practices.
Description: 
Plenary segment: National perspectives, lessons learnt, and best practices. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes that middle-income countries (MICs) face significant challenges to achieve sustainable development, as they are home to 70% of the global poor. The pandemic has made these challenges even more acute. The high-level meeting is being held under the theme “Finetuning the development system approach to address the needs of middle-income countries” and organized to take stock of the current landscape for MICs in discussing the progress on issues identified in the Summary of the 2018 UNGA High-Level Meeting on MICs, and the report A/74/269 of the Secretary General entitled “Development cooperation with middle-income countries”. The discussions will also address the current socio-economic fallout from the pandemic and how it has underlined and exacerbated existing fragilities, with severe consequences for achieving the SDGs.
