The 2016 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, with the theme “Ensuring no one is left behind,” will take place at UN Headquarters in New York from 11-20 July 2016. As the essential global platform for guiding worldwide efforts on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, this year's Forum represents the first time countries are sharing their development plans since the adoption of the SDGs.

During the Forum, 22 countries —including Georgia— will present an overview of their plans to achieve the SDGs. The Forum will consist of a 5-day expert level meeting and a 3-day ministerial meeting (18-20 July).

As 2016 marks the beginning of implementation efforts by all countries to achieve the SDGs, the focus this year will be on exchanging experiences on the initial steps and approaches taken to implementation and architecture for follow-up and review, rather than on measuring progress.
