10-19 July, 2017 – WCPUN was among the thousands of organizations attending the United Nations HLPF, where Member States gathered to report on progress made towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.” Independent reports highlighted inconsistencies between progress many States claim to have achieved and realities on the ground as witnessed by NGO/CSOs. While official mechanisms for accountability are lacking, initiatives such as the Action for Sustainable Development Network (A4SD), are providing a platform for diverse groups worldwide to make their independent findings available.
