LDCs national focal points will meet in New York from 13 to 14 July 2017 to focus on strategies for financing the implementation of the IPoA and the SDGs. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to review progress in accelerating the implementation and monitoring of the IPoA within the context of the 2030 Agenda. 

During the meeting, LDCs that have piloted the Development Finance Assessments will be invited to share country experiences in building integrated national financing frameworks for the SDGs. In addition, a session will be dedicated to sharing best practices and lessons learned in accelerating the implementation of the IPoA within the context of the 2030 Agenda. Selected LDCs that have integrated or are in the process of integrating the IPoA and the SDGs into their national planning processes will present on-going strategies for accelerating implementation of the IPoA.

Participants will also share views on how to strengthen the role of National Focal Points to enhance implementation of the IPoA and the 2030 Agenda, and establish effective coordination mechanisms among respective capitals, missions in New York and UN-OHRLLS.

The meeting will be the first gathering of the National Focal Points of LDCs after the midterm review of the Istanbul Programme of Actions (IPoA) held in Antalya, Turkey in May 2016.
