NEW YORK, NY -- WFUNA joined 237 Civil Society Organizations in signing a letter to the President of ECOSOC at the closing of this year's High Level Political Forum. The letter contains several concrete suggestions for HLPF 2017, including national reviews, a ministerial segment, as well as thematic roundtables and dialogues.

On strengthening the national review process:

The HLPF rests upon - and should aim to reinforce - national democratic ownership of the reporting frameworks by all stakeholders. National review processes need to be strengthened to be more inclusive, transparent, effective, and participatory, as well as better able to capture successes and learnings, and to make corrective adjustments, when necessary. National reviews should make the best use of already available information, including data from other UN reporting mechanisms as well as inputs from thematic experts. Additional sources of information like parallel reports should also be considered as inputs and made available on the HLPF website as part of review materials for the respective country.
