NEW YORK (December 6, 2013)– The Open Working Group (OWG) on sustainable development goals took place from 25 to 27 of November 2013 in New York at the UN Headquarters. Women’s Major Group participants presented recommendations to governments during the main sessions and through dialogue with delegates. See here for an archive of some of these statements and presentations.

The Women’s Major Group believes it is of utmost importance that the OWG report is produced in a transparent and inclusive manner, with ample opportunity for member states and civil society to contribute with comments and recommendations. WMG urge the co-chairs of session to account for the substantive participation, diverse perspectives and approaches offered at the OWG sessions by its participants for future summaries and the OWG report.
