Architecture for review and follow-up of the SDGs: Options for the High-Level Political Forum


The purpose of this paper is to discuss options for the architecture for review and follow-up of the SDGs in the context of the HLPF, without considering all the detail of who does what or how to incorporate all the organizations that will be involved. We discuss the institutional design principles for review mechanisms, in the first section, and then in the second section we describe how we see the design choices in a way that may be helpful for negotiators preparing for the May 2015 Session on Monitoring & Review of the Post-2015 Intergovernmental Negotiations.
