General Assembly of the United Nations
Given the broader framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its strong interlinkages with the Climate Agreement, the President will convene a High Level Thematic Debate on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals on 21 April 2016.
This event will serve to significantly increase international awareness and political momentum around the implementation of the SDGs. It will bring together global political, business and civil society leaders in New York to focus on kick-starting SDG implementation. It will also be a unique opportunity to address the synergy between the COP21 outcome and the 2030 Agenda. Leaders will be offered a platform to catalyse action, discuss concrete steps forward and mobilize potential implementation partners.
