On 21-22 March 2019, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is hosting the Regional Forum on Sustainable Development for the UNECE Region in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Regional Forum will be aligned with the theme of the 2019 High-level Political Forum: "Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality".
The Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (RFSD) follows up on and reviews the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UNECE region. Focusing on practical value-added and peer learning, it creates a regional space to share policy solutions, best practices and challenges in SDG implementation, and helps identify major regional and subregional trends.
As an intergovernmental mechanism, the Regional Forum is convened by UNECE, in close cooperation with the regional UN system. It is open to the participation of all relevant stakeholders, including international and regional organizations, civil society, academia, and the private sector.
