This year’s theme focuses on “Reinforcing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and eradicating poverty in times of multiple crises,” aiming to deliver sustainable, resilient, and innovative solutions across Asia and the Pacific.

The APFSD brings together UN bodies, member states, civil society, and other stakeholders to review progress, share best practices, and inform the 2024 High-level Political Forum in New York, especially with regard to the advancements in SDGs 1, 2, 13, 16, and 17, supporting the presentation of voluntary national reviews and playing a crucial role in shaping sustainable development efforts in the region amidst ongoing global challenges.
