The 2021 High Level Political Forum

The 2021 High Level Political Forum will meet, virtually, to review implementation of 9 of the Sustainable Development Goals.   The thematic sessions and consideration of the Voluntary National Reviews can be seen on UNWebTV.  Detailed information here:  https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/hlpf/2021.  The NGO Committee on Ageing is a member of the Stakeholder Group on Ageing (SGA) which focuses, along with 20 other Major Groups and Stakeholders, on sustainable development issues from the perspective of civil society.  A summary of the SGA position paper can be found here: https://undocs.org/en/E/HLPF/2021/2.   The NGO COA is taking the lead in organizing the SGA side event this year, which will discuss "COVID-19 Pandemic:  a stress text of global ageing".  A Flyer is under preparation with all the information and will be disseminated soon.
