The Organising Partners system allows the UN Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD) to consult with major groups in a timely fashion during preparatory phases and to organise multi-stakeholder participation.

The organisations serving as Organising Partners coordinate engagement, and provide guidance and expertise in developing policy positions that represent the Major Groups' constituencies relevant to the agenda points of the CSD programme of work. Major groups participate in interactive dialogues, develop coordinated statements for each Major Group sector, and lobby for particular initiatives that they feel should be supported. They also contribute significantly to partnerships for sustainable development.

In the build up to Rio+20, the Organising Partners will play a lead role facilitating the participation of representatives of their respective sectors, in order to feed their policy positions into the preparatory process. Contact details for all Organising Partners for Major Group representatives are below.
