North-East Asian Multistakeholder Forum on Sustainable Development Goals
ESCAP, the Government of the Russian Federation and Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) will jointly organize the subregional SDGs forum on 15-16 October 2019 in Vladivostok.
The North-East Asia Multistakeholder Forum on Sustainable Development Goals is a subregional preparation for the 7th Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) in 2020, which itself is one of the regional consultations towards the HLPF 2020.
The Forum will provides a unique opportunity to share sub-regional perspectives on the proposed theme of “Accelerating progress towards SDGs in Asia and the Pacific” to be addressed at the APFSD in 2020. It will bring together stakeholders from the Governments of East and North-East Asia (China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Japan, Mongolia, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation), academia, international community and civil society, and provide them with opportunity to: (1) share experiences and key challenges and opportunities for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for selected SDGs; and (2) to provide subregional inputs and perspectives for regional and global forums in 2019, notably, Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) and High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
