Abstract

In the light of ongoing international deliberations pertaining to sustainable development and the outcomes of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), the Millennium Development Goals, and the post-2015 development framework, the Asia-Pacific region has discussed its future engagement on environment, development and sustainability issues at the following recent meetings: (a) Asian and Pacific Regional Implementation Meeting on Rio+20 Outcomes; (b) second Asia-Pacific Water Summit; (c) Asia-Pacific Ministerial Dialogue: From the Millennium Development Goals to the United Nations Development Agenda beyond 2015; and (d) Meeting of Stakeholders of the Green Bridge Partnership programme. The present document reviews the scope and the outcomes of these meetings and seeks the Committee’s guidance on the role that ESCAP should play in implementing the outcomes.
