IGES launches website “Rio+20: Towards and Beyond”
Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) has just launched its Rio+20 feature website with updates on IGES activities and policy messages from an Asia-Pacific perspective towards Rio+20.
The IGES Proposal for Rio+20
IGES has been making substantial contributions to this Asia-Pacific regional and sub-regional preparatory process in North-East Asia, most recently by presenting a report on ISAP2011 (International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific) with key messages from IGES research on the themes and objectives of Rio+20.
The first draft of “The IGES Proposal for Rio+20” was distributed at the Asian and Pacific Regional meeting for UNCSD(19-20 Oct. 2011, Seoul, Korea) for early review, and will be further developed for the submission of the final IGES Proposal to UNDESA by 1 November as an input to the compilation document of the outcome document of Rio+20. In this way, we continue to actively promote our key messages worldwide.
