Please note that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, many meetings and conferences have been postponed or are taking place virtually. Some locations have resumed limited in-person meetings which comply with local public health instructions for social distancing. Participants will receive detailed information about attending the meeting from the organizer.

The meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on sustainable development convened under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council, will be held from Tuesday, 7 July to Thursday, 16 July 2020 including the three-day ministerial meeting of the forum from Tuesday, 14 July, to Thursday, 16 July 2020.


This HLPF Registration page is for the sole use of the Umbrella Organisations designated by each Major Group and Stakeholder Group constituency, to be able to register an additional 41 participants for the HLPF. 

Please do not share the link to this registration page with your wider networks. This could lead to confusion and delay in the registration process. Only share the link with the your colleagues that are who have been nominated to receive one of the additional temporary UN grounds passes. All other persons should register here:

Building on the practice established last year, UN DESA will compile the names of participants registered through this platform and submit the list to the UN Department of Safety and Security. Those participants will therefore not be required to request grounds passes  through CSOnet. They will be assigned 'T' (temporary) grounds passes for the duration of the HLPF. 

Instructions to pick up the temporary grounds passes will be announced via the Major Groups and other Stakeholders Coordination Mechanism mailing list and posted on the HLPF 2020 website:


Travel, Visa and Subsistence: All participants are responsible for securing their own funding for travel and subsistence and for making their own travel arrangements. You will also need to make your own U. S. visa and transit visa arrangements, if applicable.
