Participation in the Commission on Sustainable Development


With the increasing recognition of the important role played by major groups as partners in the WSSD follow-up, the CSD continues to explore innovative formats for their participation. Substantive exchange between major groups' representatives and government officials, including Ministers, is now integrated throughout the various official sessions of the CSD, including interactive discussions within the High-level Segment. Major groups prepare papers addressing the thematic areas on the CSD agenda and are invited to contribute to and participate in the Partnership Fair, the Learning Centre and the many side events that take place during CSD sessions.

We welcome your contribution to the nineteenth session of the Commission on Sustainable Development and its Intergovernmental Preparatory Meeting which will taking place at UN Headquarters in New York in February and May 2011.
