Draft Agenda (pdf) 



The Forum will explore opportunities for strengthening Korea’s institutional mechanisms to ensure coherent and cost-effective SDG implementation and a sustainable COVID-19 recovery. A particular focus will be on effective ways of strengthening institutional mechanisms, capacities and tools to align sub-national, national and regional actions (vertical coherence) for the SDGs. The Forum will facilitate an exchange of good practices between OECD members and partners, with a view to enhance public governance standards for sustainable development that help accelerate progress on the SDGs in Korea and the Asia Pacific region as a whole.
