In conjunction with its upcoming first universal session of the Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum (GC/GMEF) to be held from 18-22 February 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya, UNEP is organising the fourteenth Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum (GMGSF-14).
WECF Director Sascha Gabizon will speak on Saturday at the UNEP Global Forum of Major Groups and Stakeholders on SDGs and Post 2015 and on Sunday during the Gender Forum of the Network of Women Ministers on the Environment on Chemicals, Gender and Health.
The objective of the Forum will be to facilitate preparations of major groups and stakeholders towards the GC27/GMEF which will hold ministerial-level consultations on emerging policy issues under the following themes: “Implementing Rio+20: A strengthened environmental pillar of sustainable development”, and “Implementing a green economy as an important tool for achieving sustainable development”. Among other issues, the Forum will provide an opportunity for a multi-stakeholders dialogue, as part of the implementation of the Rio+20 Outcome document, on new models and mechanisms to promote transparency and effective engagement of civil society in the work of UNEP; the role and opportunities for involvement of civil society in the post-Rio+20 processes and the post-2015 development agenda.
