Prof Patrick Paul Walsh spoke at the UN Sustainable Development Transition Forum (SDTF) in Incheon, Republic of Korea on 29th – 31st October, 2018.
The focus of the event was “Accelerating Progress towards the SDGs: Enhancing the Role of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF)”.
Prof Walsh spoke in Session 1: How can HLPF provide the most useful policy
guidance for SDG implementation? and Session 6: Data, Indicators, and Science for Tracking Progress on the SDGs.
The HLPF has the potential to create government lead global partnerships in a new wave of multilateralism. The success of national/regional level SDG partnerships are central to this vision.
