The set of goals to be reviewed in depth will be SDGs 6, 7, 11, 12, 15*, including Goal 17, “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development”, an annual theme of the HLPF. This 90-minute session will focus on operational cases which have used knowledge-based mechanisms with demonstrable success. The tools and approaches include development & application of national knowledge strategies, leveraging multi-state knowledge to pool operational knowledge, and engaging with stakeholders at all levels to bring knowledge-based local solutions into national development policies, strategies and programmes.  This dialogue will be part of an ongoing series on the role of knowledge frameworks to achieve SDGs.
