Dear MAG members
I’m happy with the compromise text- it doesn’t stop any session from linking to the efforts Sala mentioned.

Also my thanks to the Working Group.

regards

>>  
>> -          Regarding a bit of an extension for last comments, we believe can do so.  We only note that the call for main sessions topics/papers should commence June 1, per the proposed timeline, and written submissions are to be provided to the MAG  by July 5 in time to be discussed during the next in-person MAG meeting in July (see timeline in the re-attached draft version 4).  If there are no objections to Renata’s suggestions below, we can include them in the draft for approval.

>> -          Regarding the outstanding issue regarding inclusion of linkages in section (C)iv on considerations for content section in the attached, it is now up to the MAG to decide, and the MAG has currently before it three options for consideration (comments provided previously) as follow. 
>>  
>> o   Sala’s proposed text:
>> §  [The co-organizers (and organizing group)] must attempt to find linkages where possible to with any of the following:
>> ·         Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals;
>> ·         The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030;
>> ·         Addis Ababa Action Agenda; 
>> ·         Paris Agreement.

>> §  [The co-organizers (and organizing group)] are encouraged to make the connection, where possible, to the 2030 Agenda/Sustainable Development Goals.
