From 30 April-1 May in New York, an expert group meeting will take place on agenda setting for the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), which was mandated at Rio+20 to focus on governance issues and agenda-setting related to the United Nations programme of work on sustainable development.
The primary purpose of the expert group meeting (EGM) is to provide a space for reflection on how the HLPF could best achieve effective agenda-setting for sustainable development in the context of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda.
