Post-Rio to Post-2015: planning international stakeholder engagement (20-21 October 2012, New Yortk)

The event ‘Post-Rio to Post-2015: Planning International Stakeholder Engagement’ brought together Major Groups and Stakeholders to identify entry points for their involvement in the follow-up processes of Rio+20 and discuss ways to enhance multi-stakeholder engagement in the Post-2015 development agenda. In addition, international representatives of Major Groups and stakeholders looked at:

  • The wide range of outcomes from Rio+20, including assessment of the successes of and implications for the Major Groups model of participation;
  • The role of Major Groups and other stakeholders in the implementation of Rio+20 outcomes;
  • The new governance architecture post Rio+20, including the space for engagement and the role of stakeholders;
  • The post-2015 development agenda, in particular the Major Groups’ role in the design and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);
  • Stakeholder inputs into UNEP’s Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum to be held in February 2013, as well as the 20th Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD 20) in May 2013.


Key conclusion: Working with governments, the UN System and other stakeholders, we must seek to achieve coherence and integration across all decision-making processes within the post-Rio+20 and the post-2015 development agenda time period. To read the full statement click here
