May 2009: A number of countries have made submissions to the UN Secretary General on the possibility of an Earth Summit in 2012. The submissions vary in length and detail, but many offer views on the focus of the proposed Summit and the  specific issues that need to be addressed.

Stakeholder Forum has produced a paper analysing in a matrix the different proposals from countries on the issues of the Green Economy, Governance for Sustainable Development, and International Environmental Governance: Focusing the Summit Agenda. This was part of a workshop organised by Stakeholder Forum, for more information click here.
