Some 750 delegates from the 33 member countries of the regional bloc confirmed their participation in the meeting, organized by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), both face-to-face and via videoconference.

The Forum will be inaugurated by the President of Costa Rica, Carlos Alvarado, the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, and the Executive Secretary of ECLAC, Alicia Barcena.

According to the source, authorities and government representatives, the United Nations System, international institutions, the private sector, academia and civil society will review the progress and challenges of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the region.

In addition, the Regional Forum will seek to provide useful peer learning opportunities through voluntary reviews, sharing of best practices, and discussion of common goals.

The conclusions of the Forum will be sent directly to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, a global follow-up mechanism for the 2030 Agenda that meets every July in New York.

ECLAC pointed out that Barcena will take advantage of the meeting to present the fifth report on the regional progress and challenges of the 2030 Agenda in Latin America and the Caribbean, entitled “A decade of action for a change of era.”
