CityNet exhibits at the APFSD held by UNESCAP

CityNet exhibited the Urban SDG  Knowledge Platform in the Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) that was held in Bangkok from 27-29 March 2019, as one of the initiatives to support the SDG implementation.

The high-level political forum meetings are held every four years, marking the end of the cycle of the Sustainable Development Goal review, and aim to provide leadership and reconfirm global consensus and commitments to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This year’s theme is “Empowering People and Ensuring Inclusiveness and Equality” with a particular objective of conducting  an in-depth review of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on quality education, Goal 8 on decent work and economic growth, Goal 10 on reducing inequalities, Goal 13 on climate action, Goal 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions and Goal 17 on partnerships for the Goals and their interlinkages, including the other Goals.

Prior to the APFSD, the Asia-Pacific People’s Forum on Sustainable Development 2019 was organised to provide a platform for civil society organizations (CSO) to work together and consolidate their positions and recommendations for a regional sustainable development agenda.

Asia-Pacific CSOs from different sectors and countries explored common ground and actions, develop common messages and coordinate strategies for more effective participation in the national, regional and global intergovernmental processes on sustainable development.
