UN Inter Agencies Working Group on the SSE (UN Task Force on SSE, in English) organized in collaboration with France and Costa Rica, a meeting as part of a side event of the High Level Policy Forum (HLPF) of the UN which was held in New York from 11 to 20 last July.

As a reminder, the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development is United Nations central platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015.
