The meeting of the HLPF in 2022 will be held from July 5-7 and from July 11-15, 2022.The theme will be “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”

HLPF will review in-depth SDG4 quality education, SDG5 gender equality, SDG14 life below water, SDG15 life on land, and SDG17 partnerships. The forum will take in to account the different and particular impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across all SDGs and the integrated, indivisible and interlinked nature of the Goals.


Our event will focus on the role of business on SDG5 and SDG17. And also explore the important role business has played during the pandemic and its ability to provide an important role in the future. Some of the biggest issues revolve around the pandemic’s impact on talent, supply chains and inclusive growth. This event, supported by SHRM, IOE and USCIB, will provide fireside chats with key business leaders with actionable learnings and recommended outcomes.

The event will discuss:

  • The pandemic has catapulted businesses forward to reinvent the future of work in embracing flexibility and reinventing the future of work. How are employers reinventing the workplace to respond to their employees? IOE
  • Resilience fosters sustainability, inclusion and growth. How should we build a resilient workplace/workforce that delivers sustainability, inclusion and growth to create lasting opportunities for all and raise the dignity of work? SHRM
  • For too long, governments and businesses have operated in silos, resulting in economies that are neither sustainable nor inclusive. How should they work together to drive economic growth and a more just society? USCIB
