Highlights for Wednesday, 19 June 2013
The fourth session of the Open Working Group (OWG-4) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) continued on Wednesday, 19 June 2013, at UN Headquarters in New York. In the morning, delegates continued a general exchange of views on health and population dynamics. There was general consensus that the health goals under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) must be expanded under the SDGs. Possible areas for expansion, as suggested by delegates, include non-communicable diseases, access to quality basic health services and access to sexual and reproductive health education and services. On population dynamics, delegates noted the need to address aging populations, youth populations, urbanization and migration, and sexual and reproductive rights, among other issues.

In the afternoon, delegates concluded discussions and the Co-Chairs presented their summary of key points on both of the issue clusters discussed during the three-day meeting: employment and decent work for all, social protection, youth, education and culture; and health and population dynamics. The meeting was adjourned at 4:50 pm.
