Your Excellency

We, members of the High Level Political Forum Major Groups and other Stakeholders Coordination Mechanism (HLPF MGoS CM), want to thank you for your continued leadership in the High Level Political Forum process. We appreciate the participatory and transparent approach that ECOSOC has ensured for civil society, major groups and stakeholders engagement in the HLPF.

Acknowledging that human rights, gender equality and sustainability are cross-cutting throughout the 2030 Agenda, as well as the need for continued transparent and active civil society and stakeholders engagement in its implementation and follow up process, we approach you with concerns related to the negotiations that are currently taking place regarding the Ministerial Declaration.

We are aware and support your intention of submitting the version of July 10th for adoption on the last day of the HLPF. In this regard, we would also like to suggest that, following procedure, a meeting be called with the relevant member states to work together, prior to Wednesday, to ensure progress in reaching a consensus on the adoption of a strong ministerial declaration. In this process, we would very much appreciate the involvement of MGoS as has been the practice to date.
We are at your disposal to provide concrete recommendations and support a strong and ambitious Ministerial Declaration.
