Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development

Regional and subregional dialogue and processes provide opportunities for peer learning and for cooperation among countries, and for follow up and review of the 2030 Agenda.

The Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) is the preeminent platform for follow up and review of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals in the Asia-Pacific region. First convened in 2014 as a regional preparatory meeting for the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, the APFSD will strengthen national and global implementation efforts.

ESCAP organizes preparatory meetings for the sessions of the APFSD in each ESCAP sub-region. The preparatory meetings represent a unique opportunity to bring together stakeholders from government, academia, the international community, civil society and the private sector and provide them with: (1) the opportunity to provide sub regional perspectives for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and for the Road Map for implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific; (2) an enabling environment for knowledge sharing and engaging in technical level discussions on the theme of the APFSD and HLPF.

Regional process and dialogues strengthen the delivery of the means of implementation while subregional dialogues bring governments together to plan for cooperation and prioritizing action at the subregional level.
