The Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals held its 10th session from March 31-April 4 at the UN Headquarters in New York.

During the session Major Groups and other stakeholders commented and gave feedback on a revised list of 19 Focus Areas, possible targets relating to each (based on discussions at OWG-9 in March) and discussed ways of going forward for its last three sessions.
