The High-level Political Forum (HLFP) is the central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, provides for the full and effective participation of all States Members of the United Nations and States members of specialized agencies. 

The 2019 HLPF, from 9-18 July, looked at the fourth Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG 4) for the first time.

Produced under the auspices of the SDG - Education 2030 Steering Committee, this special report shows the different ways that countries have taken on the challenge of implementing SDG 4 at the national level. It showcases good practices from countries that have reflected SDG 4 in their policies since 2015 and suggests a new framework for assessing the extent to which their policies match their 2030 commitments in the future.
