March 6th (Sunday) Conference on IEG, Sustainable Development Governance and Rio+20: A Stakeholder Consultation in New York

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Stakeholder Forum are organising a conference on Sunday 6th March entitled: “IEG, Sustainable Development Governance and Rio+20: A Stakeholder Consultation”.

The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development addresses two themes:

This conference will be a great opportunity for stakeholders to approach the ongoing discussion on International Environmental Governance under the UNEP-led process, as well as the broader issue of Sustainable Development Governance.

The day will be organised around two panels:

  • What should be the major building blocks of IEG reform?

  • How should IEG be linked to Sustainable Development Governance?

Each of the panels will be followed by breakout groups to look at what has been heard and will address specific additional questions.

Stakeholder Forum will be producing a report from the Conference and submitting it to the second meeting of the Preparatory Committee for UNCSD on 7th - 8th March.
