The fourth meeting of the Forum of the Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean on Sustainable Development will take place virtually on March 15-18 under the presidency of Costa Rica. The objective of this event is to analyze progress on regional implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
It will feature the presence of high-level authorities, such as Carlos Alvarado, the President of Costa Rica, which currently holds ECLAC’s presidency pro tempore; Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations; Munir Akram, President of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC); and Alicia Bárcena, Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).
Participants will include representatives from governments in the region’s 33 countries, agencies, funds and programs of the United Nations system, international financial institutions and development banks, regional and subregional integration bodies, civil society, the legislative arena, academia and the private sector – both from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as other regions of the world.
