Meeting knowledge and capacity needs after Rio+20

Expert consultation on knowledge and capacity needs for sustainable development in the post-Rio+20 era will be organized on 6-8 March in Incheon, Republic of Korea

Over the past decades, there have been a number of initiatives aiming at providing knowledge and capacity building in the field of sustainable development. Following the Rio+20 Conference, several platforms, programmes, and training initiatives were launched, quickly making it challenging to determine who does what, and how.

Arranged by the United Nations Office for Sustainable Development (UNOSD) in Incheon, the consultation aims to address this challenge, among others. It will bring together senior policy-making experts representing governments and a broad spectrum of organizations to develop a framework for action that meets the knowledge and capacity needs of the post-Rio+20 era.

The Consultation is preceded by UNOSD’s second Steering Committee meeting, which will be held on 5 March. The Committee will review the progress made and discuss activities to be carried out during 2013.
