HLPF 2019: GNDR advocates for risk-informed development

GNDR members and staff participated in this year’s High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) in New York on 9-18 July. Organised annually by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, this is where countries come together and review their progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our goal was to advocate risk-informed development, for local level participation in decision-making and policy coherence. Here’s an overview of our activities at the conference.

3 ways the SDGs could fill the shortcomings of the SFDRR

The Sustainable Development Goals are now out. But how is resilience incorporated? Will the SDGs fill the shortcomings of the SFDRR? Does it pave the way for an ambitious Climate Change Agreement later this year? What should civil society do now? Lucy Pearson just about scrapes the surface on these questions and asks you to share your thoughts.
