Formulating global sustainability

owgThe process of finalizing the Sustainable Development Goals is now entering the final phase. The UN-established body, Open Working Group (OWG), which is responsible for this work, has come a long way, starting in March 2013 with eight stocktaking meetings, followed by consideration of elements for a goals and targets framework, at the 9th session, that commenced on March 2014. Since then the OWG has forged an ambitious, extensive yet focused text. The next and final step is to finalize and refine the framework and pass it on to the General Assembly.
