The Regional Forum was closely aligned with the issues addressed at the 2018 High-level Political Forum (HLPF). The policy segment of the Regional Forum therefore provided a regional angle to the 2018 global theme “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies”.

At the very heart of the Regional Forum were peer learning round tables with a focus on the five SDGs under in-depth review at the 2018 HLPF, namely SDGs 6,7,11,12 and 15. Country representatives and other stakeholders shared concrete case studies from their national experience, proposed solutions to identified problems and discussed how best practices can be adopted by peers. 

Further room for discussion was provided by side events covering a range of topics and approaches on SDG implementation.
