Sustainable Development Goals Adopted by the Open Working Group

The long – awaited Outcome Document of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals has been made public on the 19th of July, after the closure of the 13th session of the Open Working Group, which took place between 14th and 18th of July.

The document reaffirms “the commitment to freeing humanity from poverty and hunger as a matter of urgency.” Additionally, the Open Working Group “underscored that the global nature of climate change calls for the widest possible cooperation by all countries and their participation in an effective and appropriate international response, with a view to accelerating the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.”

Among others, the Outcome Document on Sustainable Development Goals emphasizes the need to “encourage and promote effective public, public-private, and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships.”
