Reducing Inequalities: SDG 10 Progress and Prospects

2-3 April, 2019
Geneva, Switzerland

This two-day conference will look at the progress made on SDG 10, which calls for reduced inequalities. The outcomes from this conference will be used as inputs in preparation for the UN High Level Political Forum on empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality to be held in July 2019.

This event will take stock of the progress toward achieving SDG 10 and will particularly focus on issues related to within-country inequalities. Participants will share knowledge about success stories, good practices, and challenges, and identify areas of concern. The meeting, jointly organized by the World Bank and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA), will help inform the 2019 UN High Level Political Forum to be held in July and serve to influence collaboration and programmes on inequality going forward from 2019.
