Description: On 24 and 25 September 2019, 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.
The United Nations SDG Summit will be chaired by the President of the General Assembly and will also result in a concise negotiated political declaration.
Since the 2030 Agenda was adopted, governments, businesses, and citizen organizations have moved to embrace the SDGs and have used the goals and the centerpiece of their development plans. The SDG Summit will also seek to mobilize further support for action to achieve the SDGs and will encourage voluntary commitments by governments and all stakeholders to accelerate action.
