Human Rights and the 2030 Agenda: Leaving no one behind while accelerating SDG implementation
12 Jul 2019 -  The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development places human rights at its core. In the words of Amina Mohammed, UN’s Deputy Secretary-General, “human rights are an intrinsic part of sustainable development -- and sustainable development is a powerful vehicle for the realization of all human rights.”

Since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, much progress has been made in increasing awareness on how the promotion and protection of human rights and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda are interrelated and mutually reinforcing and on the synergies between the two.

The proposed side event aims to share the outcomes of the intersessional meeting with the participants of the HLPF. The recommendations of the meeting and the discussions held offer valuable inspiration and concrete examples of ways to effectively integrate a human rights-based approach to SDG planning, implementation, monitoring and review, with a particular focus on key questions of relevance to this year’s HLPF:

- How can we promote empowerment, inclusion and equality in SDG implementation?
- What are the roles of the human rights mechanisms in supporting SDG processes?
- How can we ensure adequate space for civil society, business and other partners?
