The High-level Political Forum on sustainable development is the main United Nations platform dealing with sustainable development.

Disaster management and vulnerability and climate change are among the themes to be addressed during the forum. The links between these topics and sustainable development are strong, natural disasters and climate change will know no boundaries, poor and developing countries, particularly the LDCs, will be among those most adversely affected and least able to cope with the anticipated shocks to their social, economic and natural systems. Environmental, economic, and social planning components should be integrated in order to address sustainable development.
