Accountability Mechanisms for Implementing the SDGs - Side Event to the 29th Session of the HRC

In the context of the UN Summit to adopt the post-2015 development agenda in September 2015, this side event to the 29th session of the HRC discussed the importance of human rights principles in informing the debates on accountability for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The meeting addressed issues of claims and standards for accountability, as per existing international human rights law, as well as considerations how the Universal Periodic Review mechanism currently in place at the HRC could best serve as a model for a future SDG accountability mechanism.
