The State Great Hural of Mongolia and the Inter-Parliamentary Union are jointly organizing the Second Regional Seminar for the Asia-Pacific Region Parliaments on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The seminar will take place in Ulaanbaatar from 27 to 28 May 2019 and will follow up on the conclusions of the first seminar on this topic held in Ho Chi Minh City (Viet Nam) in 2017.

The aim of the seminar is to further define the opportunities and challenges facing parliaments in the Asia-Pacific region in exercising their role in SDGs implementation. It will provide a platform to share experiences, facilitate mutual learning on meeting the SDGs, engage in comprehensive discussions and get acquainted with good practices in developing effective parliamentary strategies for SDGs implementation.

Particular emphasis will be placed on heightening understanding about how parliaments can institutionalize the SDGs, promote convergence between the 2030 Agenda and national action plans and build coherence around the SDGs at the policy level.
