One Planet network at the HLPF 2018

The HLPF is the main United Nations platform on sustainable development and it has a central role in the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

In 2018, the forum reviewed progress on Goal 12 of Sustainable consumption and production. This presented the opportunity to:

  • Position the One Planet network as an implementation mechanism for Goal 12; 
  • Launch new initiatives, including the new strategy ‘One Plan for One Planet’;
  • Showcase major achievements of the network over the first 5 years;
  • Mobilise political support.

The One Planet network had a significant presence at the HLPF, organising and participating in several events, securing high-level political support at the official review of SDG 12 and other events. 

In addition, the One Planet network was very active in advance of the forum, providing inputs which were featured in the two pieces of the official documentation of the HLPF:
