The first Regional Forum on Sustainable Development convened on 25 April 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland. Through it, the UNECE region seeks to follow up on and review implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the region.
The RFSD also provides an opportunity for countries to share lessons learned, best practices and challenges in implementing the SDGs. The forum opened with a policy segment. During the afternoon, three round tables convened, focusing on: National and local adaptation of SDGs; Subregional cooperation for SDG implementation; and Data and monitoring.
