On 10 and 11 January 2011, the first intersessional meeting of the Preparatory Committee for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD, Brazil 2012) is held in New York.
This Conference will aim to renew the political commitment to sustainable development, assess progress and gaps in the implementation of international goals that have already been agreed upon, and address the challenges that arise. It will focus on two themes: "Green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication" and "Institutional framework for sustainable development."
The first intersessional meeting of the preparatory committee will provide an update of the preparatory process and an overview of the Synthesis report on best practices and lessons learned on the objective and themes of the Conference.
