OEWG 2021-2025 agrees on consensus Annual Progress Report at its third substantive session

The third substantive session of the OEWG 2021-2025 was held from 25-29 July 2022, in-person in New York (with a webcast through UN WebTV). Ahead of the session, an informal consultative meeting with interested stakeholders was held on 21 July 2022. The session’s agenda included two rounds of discussions on the Zero-Draft of the annual progress report prepared by the Chair, as well as a dedicated stakeholder session on capacity building and implementation of the concrete, action-oriented proposals contained in the draft report. At the end, the delegations have agreed by consensus on the Annual Progress Report (A/77/275), which was a result of compromise and shall serve as a roadmap for further negotiations.
