High Level Political Forum

Each year in July, the United Nations member states meet in New York and focuses on the fulfillment of a selected set of sustainable development goals. The meeting is called the High Level Political Forum (HLPF), and the countries voluntarily report a status of the current situation in their country. Denmark issued a report (VNR - Voluntary National Report) in 2017 and again in 2021. Read the reports and get an overview of the SDGs in focus at HLPF 2024.
