HLPF 2023: Accelerating the Recovery from the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the Full Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all Levels


The United Nations High-Level Political Review Forum (HLPF) is the central United Nations platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the global level. The theme for 2023 is "Accelerating the recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels". Stakeholders are discussing the recovery measures that are attempting to mitigate the adverse effects of COVID-19 on the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals. 

Human mobility is essential to achieving the 2030 Agenda. When well-governed, human mobility can have an impact on all SDGs, including those where the linkages may not be readily apparent. The SDGs in focus for the HLPF are below. Click each link to see exactly how human mobility fits into the context and achievement of the SDGs. IOM has also created infographics that summarize some of the evidence and ways that human mobility and migration feed into the SDGs. Two of these (SDG 6 and 11) have case study variants, to demonstrate the way migration fits into specific communities such as Azerbaijan and Serbia and their SDG goals.
