From 18 - 22 February 2012 in Nairobi, Kenya, nrg4SD took part for another year in the annual meetings of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This year the 13th Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum of UNEP and 12th special session of its Governing Council/Global Ministerial marked the 40th anniversary of UNEP. Thanks to its accreditation within the Local Authorities Major Group, nrg4SD participated in these sessions in its capacity of member of Major Groups Facilitating Committee.
The nrg4SD Secretariat took advantage of the participation of national delegations, major groups, stakeholders, UN high-level officials, Rio +20 Bureau members and Rio +20 Executive Coordinator Mr. Brice Lalonde to continue building strategic alliances for the Network’s engagement in the Rio +20 Process and World Summit of Federated States and Regions. The working days in Nairobi were also an occasion to continue ongoing work with UN Habitat towards an international initiative on landscape fragmentation at subnational level.
