This section will focus on the specific situation in the Pacific sub-region in connection to the 2019 HLPF/APFSD Theme, the cluster of goals under review and the VNR preparation. While 2 countries have already presented VNRs (Samoa in 2016 and Kiribati in 2017), for the 2019 HLPF a large number of Pacific islands have planned to prepare their reports. These include Fiji, Nauru, Palau, Tonga and Vanuatu. Moreover, the theme of “Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality” and the cluster of goals under review (in particular SDG 13 on Climate Change) are extremely relevant for the Pacific community. As described in Res 69/15 on the Samoa Pathway and in the recent Voluntary National Reviews of some of the Pacific Countries.
