This session was a joint session of the IAEG-SDGs and HLG-PCCB on “Moving forward with the 2030 Agenda”. After participating in different sessions across the other thematic areas during the previous two and half days, representatives of both the IAEG-SDGs and HLG presented their takeaways and knowledge learned from the forum. Each speaker focused on a specific thematic area, with all thematic areas covered by the participants. Speakers focused their remarks on how this knowledge can be applied to implement the SDG indicator framework at both the global and national level. In addition, speakers from the HLG also presented ideas on how to move forward with the Global Action Plan. The session had two panels: one with IAEG-SDG members that focused specifically on how the knowledge learned from the forum can be applied to the implementation of the global indicator framework and a second panel with HLG members that focused on how the knowledge learned from the forum can be applied to the Global Action Plan.
