      > today and tomorrow, to discuss the proposed Sustainable Development Goal

      > Janeiro in June 2012. The Open Working Group taking forward this
      > important work consists of 30 seats, shared by 70 member states.

      > It gives me great pleasure to share with you (see links below) the GWP
      > report of the 22 country consultations undertaken worldwide, in support
      > of this process, and the post-2015 development framework. This report is
      > an official document informing the Open Working Group meeting, and has a
      > foreword by our GWP Chair, Ursula Schaefer-Preuss. It appears on the
      > official webpage of the Open Working Group under the following link : http://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/index.php?menu=1630
      > (under "additional resources" on the right hand side of the webpage)
       >
      > The report is also on the GWP website, along with all the detailed country reports: http://www.gwp.org/en/gwp-in-action/News-and-Activities/Country-Consultations-on-Water-Speak-to-post-2015-Agenda/

       > I would like to thank all those who have been involved in organizing and
      > carrying out these country consultations, and preparing the report,
      > especially the GWP Country Water Partnerships. The voices of many
      > stakeholders are represented in this report, which gives a clear call
      > for focusing on water security, in order to achieve sustainable
      > development. Powerful ammunition for the Open Working Group to
      > establish a Sustainable Development Goal on water!
