The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant setback regarding the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The 2022 Regional Forum offered opportunities for exchange and peer learning on how to accelerate SDG progress in the context of COVID-19 in several formats, including plenary sessions, peer learning round tables, side events and preparatory consultations.
The following SDGs were reviewed in depth: 


  • SDG 4 – quality education and lifelong learning
  • SDG 5 – gender equality and empowerment of women and girls
  • SDG 14 – life below water: oceans, seas and marine resources
  • SDG 15 – life on land: terrestrial ecosystems, forests, desertification, land degradation, biodiversity
  • SDG 17 – partnerships for the goals
