SF calls on UK Stakeholders to respond the Secretary-General’s Questionnaire
Stakeholder Forum is calling on Development and Environment Group (DEG) members and UK stakeholders to respond the Secretary-General’s Questionnaire.
The next major milestone on the road towards Rio +20 will be the submissions to the Secretary General’s Report by Member States, Major Groups, UN agencies and Other Stakeholders by 31st October. These submissions should be guided by the Secretary General’s Questionnaire –available here: http://bit.ly/apsrrA
In relation to the Secretary General’s Questionnaire, Stakeholder Forum is calling on DEG members and UK stakeholders more broadly to take the following steps:
Make a submission from your organization to the Secretary General by 31st October 2010
Stakeholder Forum will be compiling a consolidated submission to the Secretary General based on UK stakeholder submissions, so if you would like your submission to be included in this, please send it to Nicola Williams ([email protected]) or Andrew Shaw ([email protected]) by 20th October – we will be compiling all submissions we receive from stakeholders into a document outlining key points and recommendations
Stakeholder Forum will also send this consolidated submission to the UK government (Defra), who have promised to in turn forward it to the Secretary General with a cover letter
To assist stakeholders in their submissions, SF have put together several background documents from the preparatory process so far and briefing papers on the themes of the Summit. These are available below:
