uneo-whatroleforstakeholders

A multi-stakeholder conversation co-organized by the United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS), Stakeholder Forum and ANPED

On 3 May, 2007 more than 25 representatives of civil society and the private sector met with representatives of the French government in New York to discuss the reform of international environmental governance (IEG) and, in particular, the idea of transforming the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) into a United Nations Environment Organisation (UNEO)

The meeting provided participants with an update on developments in IEG reform, as well as an opportunity to discuss possible models for engaging stakeholders in a UNEO.
