Open Letter to the Co-chairs and Member States from Major Groups and Stakeholders

We call into mind the compromise that co-chairs had made, to have ‘informal informals’ in the week preceding the open working group meeting. We, therefore, object that the informals were resumed during the formal session and that civil society was subsequently excluded, without a clear reason to do so.

Representatives of major groups and stakeholders of civil society registered to participate in the 12th session of the Open Working Group (OWG) on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), wrote this letter to the co-chairs, following the decision to close the session to civil society.
