GEG Project Reporting From UNEP Meetings In Nairobi

Feb 17, 2011 1 Comment by

Members of the GEG team have just arrived in Nairobi, Kenya, where a busy week of UNEP conferences is just about to start. A full-day meeting with the Civil Society Advisory Group on International Environmental Governance will be held 18 February, followed by the Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum (GMGSF) on 19-20 February, which is a pre-sessional event to the 26th UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum (GC/GMEF) 21-24 February.

If you would like to stay up to date with what is happening in these meetings related to the international environmental governance reform agenda, you have good reasons to frequently visit this website in the coming week. Summaries of important developments will be posted daily. You can also get live-time updates by following the GEG Project on Twitter and Facebook. If you would also like to interact directly with the GEG team members in Nairobi to help impact the conference outcomes, make sure to join the discussions in the LinkedIn group on Global Environmental Governance. The GEG team is constantly looking for new ideas and bright perspectives on what to bring up in both formal exchanges and informal discussions with other conference participants, so take the opportunity to feed in your thoughts on the most burning issues on the table.

Here are the agendas for the different conferences:

18 February – Civil Society Advisory Group on International Environmental Governance
19-20 February – Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum
21-24 February – Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum.
