Our time at the 2019 UN High-level political forum

This year’s UN High-level Political Forum (HLPF) to track progress on the 2030 Agenda – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was particularly important to the Movement as Goal 16 – Peace and Inclusive Good Governance – was on the agenda.

A top theme discussed everywhere was the declining civil space in many parts of the world. The difference this time is that there emerged concrete strategic tactics which civil society can take to expand civic space, notably:

  • Building inclusive alliances so that civil society can speak with one voice in negotiating with government.
  • Finding and nurturing champions within government for civil society.
