Beginning today, Tuesday, 24 September, following the opening of the 74th General Debate, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) will convene a meeting of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), which will take place on the afternoon of 24 September and all day on 25 September.

At the HLPF, Heads of State and Government will gather at the United Nations Headquarters in New York to follow up and comprehensively review progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event is the first UN summit on the SDGs since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in September 2015.

In preparation for this important occasion, the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) wishes to fulfill its commitment to share important messages from the 2017-2019 programme of work, the 2019 monitoring results and the recent Senior-Level Meeting, to make clear the contribution of development effectiveness to the 2030 Agenda.
 
As such, find here some key ‘political messages’ that aim to do just this, along with the headline messages from Parts I and II of the monitoring report. Our hope is that all GPEDC stakeholders help us to convey these important messages, at the Summit and beyond; and demonstrate that the effectiveness principles, as a basis for more equal and empowered partnerships, are part of the path to inclusive, sustainable development.
