The 2030 Agenda under the Japanese presidency of the G20 (HLPF 2019 Side Event)
15 Jul 2019 -  In the several G20 work streams, various areas of the 2030 Agenda were discussed and their outcome documents will be endorsed at the G20 Osaka Summit. Notably, this year the G20 Development Working Group — mandated to act “as a coordinating body and policy resource for sustainable development across the G20” (G20 Action Plan on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, 2016) — focused, inter alia, on health, education, disaster risk reduction, quality infrastructure, innovation, gender equality, climate change and the marine environment, in line with the 2030 Agenda.

The United Nations is among the International Organizations invited to the G20 Osaka Summit. In his participation in past G20 Summits, the Secretary-General has repeatedly called on G20 members to lead by example, taking bolder actions to align their domestic policies with the 2030 Agenda in its integrity and scaling up their international support, as envisioned in the G20 Action Plan on the 2030 Agenda.

Given the G20’s comparative advantages, including “its convening power and its collective ability to adopt and support initiatives at the highest global level,” and the fact that the G20 development agenda is closely aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it is necessary and meaningful to review international efforts in order to make substantial progress.
