Delegates converse at end of Wednesday's meeting

Tekeda Alemu, Permanent Representative of Ethiopia,
commented on the discussion document for the Declaration.

2015 Time for Global Action Agenda for People and for Planet Friday’s session began shortly after 11:00 am. The delayed start gave governments more time to consider the document that the co-facilitators had released on Thursday. Participants delivered statements on the document throughout the day.

During the closing session, Co-Facilitator David Donoghue said the document had succeeded in drawing delegates into a clearer and sharper debate on the contents of the Declaration. He said the debate indicated where convergence seemed possible, and where it is less likely.

Regarding next steps, the co-facilitators said the March session of the intergovernmental negotiations – focusing on the SDGs and targets – will discuss input received following the 46th Session of the UN Statistical Commission. The March session will include a presentation on indicators, debate and discussion, a dialogue with stakeholders, and a discussion of the April session, which will take up Means of Implementation and Global Partnership.

The meeting adjourned at 6:02 pm.
