Focusing on sustainable consumption and production, transportation and mining

Thematic Seminar Series from January to April will help to prepare for the upcoming Commission on Sustainable Development in May 2010

The CSD Secretariat has launched a new and innovative Thematic Seminar Series to present scientific and technical information on the current issues under consideration this year at the CSD – transport, chemicals, waste management, mining, and the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production.

The CSD Thematic Seminar Series features presentations by technical experts, video documentaries highlighting challenges and successes, and interactive discussions. It is designed to inform all CSD participants on the latest research, data, and case studies that will underpin the discussions during the upcoming Review Session this spring.

The briefings are taking place from January through April, from 10 am until 1 pm. The remaining themes, dates and locations are about Sustainable Consumption and Production on 23 March, Transportation on 13 April and Mining later in April.
