This includes the three-day ministerial segment of the forum from Monday 17 July to Wednesday 19 July 2023. The high-level segment of the Council will conclude with a final day on Thursday 20 July 2023.

The theme for the 2023 HLPF is “Accelerating the recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels”.

In the forum, participants will be able to further discuss the effective and inclusive recovery measures to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and explore actionable policy guidance for the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs at all levels.
