SDGs - and then there were 15?

The SDG OWG 12th session started today after a three day informal last week. In the session this evening when the co-chairs introduced the report back from last Monday they made a suggestion of combining some goals so we are down from 17 to 15 in their list. Governments still to be convinced. Changes in bold. They remove a stand alone goal for climate and inequalities.
