22nd- 24th October 2009: Stakeholder Forum facilitated two workshops to discuss the themes and focus of the proposed Rio+20 Earth Summit in 2012. The workshops sought to address the issues that will need to be addressed if the UN General Assembly agrees to a Summit. The workshops were designed for government participation only, and were made possible with the generous support of the Governments of Switzerland and France, and Skanska.

Stakeholder Forum prepared three papers for the workshop to focus discussions and stimulate debate on ‘Preparing the Summit':

Paper 1: Focussing the Summit Agenda


Paper 2: Organisational Options for the 2012 Sustainable Development Summit


Paper 3: Intergovernmental Roadmap to 2012
