Thematic reviews of progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, including cross-cutting issues and interlinkages, are an essential part of the annual session of the High-level Political Forum under the auspices of the ECOSOC.

The voluntary national reviews VNRs aim to facilitate the sharing of experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, with a view to accelerating the implementation of the Agenda.

Tuesday, 9 July. Official Programme. The Agenda for Sustainable Development is a vision for people, planet, peace and prosperity to be achieved through partnership and solidarity. It is now in its fourth year of implementation. Over the past years, progress has been made with regard to a number of Sustainable Development Goals SDGs and their targets. A number of actions have been undertaken by Governments and other stakeholders to respond to the Agenda more broadly.
However, progress has been slow on many SDGs and the most vulnerable people and countries continue to suffer the most. The global response needs to become more ambitious.
Speakers will bring various perspectives on the follow up and review of implementation of the Agenda and the SDGs. They will indicate what they see as priorities for the political leadership and point to urgent multi-stakeholder action needed to accelerate progress. More on this session. Progress, gaps and obstacles: are we on track for leaving no one behind? The world has made encouraging progress in implementing the Agenda for Sustainable Development in areas such as the reduction of extreme poverty, access to health and education services, and development of basic infrastructure.
Yet we are off track for meeting many of the goals by Climate change threatens to undermine progress on all SDGs and impact all areas of the world, and its effects are disproportionately felt by the poorest and most vulnerable. Global hunger and forced displacement of people is on the rise.
In many places, rapid economic growth has come at the cost of considerable environmental degradation. Biodiversity loss is accelerating, with one million species at risk of extinction. The implementation of the SDGs also takes place at a time of global uncertainty, where international cooperation, an essential component of an inter-connected world, is under fire.
The Agenda is universal, holistic and indivisible, with a core principle to leave no one behind. The achievement of SDG 4 — ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all — plays a central role in building sustainable, inclusive and resilient societies. While education is most explicitly formulated as a stand-alone goal SDG4 in the Agenda, it also has close links with all the other SDGs and the Agenda as a whole.
There are a number of education-related targets and indicators in other SDGs, including health and well-being Target 3.
