Capacity building sessions at UNEP Governing Council

In an ongoing series of workshops hosted by UN DESA, training will be offered to Major groups on the margins of the 12th Governing Council Session of UNEP in Nairobi on 20-22 February

Developed for trainers, the workshops are designed to enhance awareness of the themes of sustainable development and build stakeholder capacity to engage with the intergovernmental process.  Each workshop builds on previous training and provides participants with the most current information relevant to the Rio+20 process. 

Workshops will be hosted in New York in January, March and April; in Porto Alegre, Brazil on the margins of the World Social Forum; and in São Paulo, Brazil in early February.
