Sustainable Development Goals and forests: A summary of UN Open Working Group debates and country reflections
The UN’s Open Working Group (OWG) proposed draft sustainable development goals (SDGs) in July 2014.
This report summarises some of the positions put forward by countries during the debates on forests in the meetings of the OWG, together with reflections from a number of countries on the OWG process after its conclusion.
IIED is working to help install forest-related targets and indicators into the post-2015 development framework, contributing towards notional goal areas on poverty reduction and equality, economic growth and employment, food security, water and energy, climate change, ecosystems and biodiversity.
