Statement at Third session of the Open-ended intergovernmental working group to elaborate the content of an international regulatory framework, without prejudging the nature thereof, relating to the activities of private military and security companies, 9 May 2022

The annual work programme of the IAEG-SDGs, agreed by the UN Statistical Commission every year in March, focuses on the implementation of the indicator framework. Work of the group includes regularly reviewing methodological developments and issues related to the indicators and their metadata; a work stream on data disaggregation; three separate working groups (elaborated below in Working Groups) and the sharing of experiences and best practices on Sustainable Development Goal monitoring. The links below provide information on the work of the Expert Group in these areas, as well as the annual reports to the UN Statistical Commission summarizing their activities.

Currently, the three working groups of the IAEG-SDGs address Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX), geospatial information, and measurement of development support. A task team has also been established to develop a proposal on sustainable tourism indicators. The links for more information on the three groups and task team can be found below. The working groups and task team are responsible for their own detailed work plans, methods of work, and communication and coordination mechanisms with other partners. Countries that are not members of the IAEG-SDGs, international organisations, civil society, academia and the private sector were invited to participate in these groups subject to criteria established by each working group and task team. Each of the three working groups and the task team reports on its progress at each of the meetings of the IAEG-SDGs.

Pursuant to General Assembly resolution 76/231, the open-ended working group on reducing space threats through norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviours convened its organizational session on 7 and 9 February 2022 at the Palais des Nations, United Nations Office at Geneva.

The report of the Secretary-General and the views submitted by Member States are available on the website of the Office for Disarmament Affairs.

The third session of the Open-ended working group on reducing space threats through norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviours is scheduled to take place from 30 January to 3 February 2023 in the Tempus Building at the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland.
