The primary objective of the special thematic event was to build common ground on how the implementation of the IPoA can be enhanced during the remainder of the decade by building synergies and coherence in the implementation of the Istanbul Progrmnme of Action and the 2030 Agenda. The event also aimed to discuss how to strengthen global partnerships for sustainable development, with a view to ensuring full implementation of the IPoA during the remainder of the decade and thereby realizing its ambitious objective of enabling half the number of LDCs attaining the graduation threshold. Participants were invited to make specific expressions of support to LDCs.
Patrick Guillaumont was a speaker for the panel “Forging strengthened multi-stakeholder partnerships for timely implementation of the IPoA and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda”.
