The Regional Forum included two segments:

  • A policy segment, allowing to take stock of the second year of the SDGs - knowing where we stand and moving on to prosperity and well-being for all.
  •  A peer learning segment composed of three parallel round tables on the topics of National and local adaptation of SDGs, Subregional cooperation for SDG implementation as well as Data and monitoring.

The 2017 Regional Forum was preceded by two meetings on 24 April: a preparatory civil society consultation and a regional preparatory workshop for the countries from the UNECE region conducting Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) at the 2017 High-Level Political Forum.
