The Global Research Programme on Inequality (GRIP) is honoured to participate in the upcoming Expert Group Meeting (EGM), a precursor to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) in July 2024. This EGM is a collaborative effort organised by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable Development Goals (UN-DESA/DSDG), the World Bank, UNCTAD, and other partners. It will focus on the review of SDG 1 and its crucial role in advancing sustainable development across the 2030 Agenda.

The objective of the EGM is to evaluate progress towards SDG 1, identify innovative solutions and different approaches for the second half of the agenda, and consider the changing environment for ending poverty, especially in light of the intensifying climate crisis, the ongoing recovery from COVID-19, and other challenges. The meeting will also build on new opportunities, learnings, and good practices that have emerged, and harness the political momentum from the recent SDG Summit.

These discussions will inform the subsequent HLPF, assist in planning its sessions, and help to identify collaborations and programmes of work on SDG 1 moving forward from 2024. Additionally, the EGM will explore how progress on SDG 1 can generate synergies across the 2030 Agenda and align with poverty reduction efforts.
