On Friday, the final day of the meeting, delegates held an interactive discussion on poverty eradication as the over-arching issue for the SDGs. Delegates focused on, inter alia: the multidimensionality of poverty eradication; the drivers of poverty in society; the inclusion of marginalized groups; the principle of human-centered development; the need for country-specific indicators and measurements; and developing effective means of implementation.

In the afternoon, the Group’s draft Programme of Work (PoW) for 2013-2014 was discussed. Delegates agreed on the programme for the next two meetings (22-24 May and 17-19 June). Undertaking to release a full PoW in the coming days, Co-Chair Kamau thanked everyone for "a diverse and attentive discussion" and closed the meeting at 5:50pm.
