International Workshop on Strengthening Planning and Implementation Capacities for Sustainable Development in Post Rio+20 Context
14 - 16 Nov 2012


Coverage of the meeting.


Available evidence on the implementation of National Sustainable Development Strategies (NSDS) points out that countries are at different stages of implementation - some being more advanced than others. The country reports written along the preparatory process to the Rio+20 Conference highlight some of the implementation challenges. The outcome document for Rio+20 reinforces the role of NSDS, underlining the role that green economy policies can play in the elaboration of these strategies, as well as the importance of knowledge exchange and capacity building in this regard.

Against this background, the UNOSD organized an International Workshop on Strengthening Planning and Implementation Capacities for Sustainable Development in the Post-Rio+20 Context. The workshop was held at Songdo Park Hotel in Incheon, Republic of Korea, on 14-16 November 2012.

Following the format of a multi-stakeholder dialogue, the workshop brought together representatives of governments, UN system entities, multilateral and regional development banks, policy think tanks and network, private sector and civil society. The objectives were to: (i) share experiences and lessons learned in implementing sustainable development at national and local levels; (ii) gauge the efficacy and suitability of existing knowledge and capacity building efforts; and (iii) create opportunities for building partnerships in knowledge sharing in the area of planning and implementation of sustainable development.
