Conference documents and materials

Documents and materials for the Conference are being posted on this webpage as soon as they become available. For more details on the documents preparatory process please visit the webpages of the UNECE Committee on Environmental Policy.

!!! To minimise the use of natural resources, the Astana Ministerial Conference will be a paper-less event. In order to considerably diminish the printing of documents for the Conference, all Conference documents will be made available on this website. Conference participants are encouraged to download them in electronic format and, if necessary, print them. Only documents produced during the preparatory meeting of the Committee and the Conference (e.g. Ministerial Declaration and Chair’s Summary) will be distributed with two hard copies per delegation. The host country will provide the necessary technical equipment (electric sockets and WiFi Internet connection) to enable the use of laptops in the Conference venue. Given financial resource constraints, the host country invites participants to bring their own laptops to the Conference. !!!

!!! Для уменьшения ущерба окружающей среде, Конференция в Астане будет проведена без использования бумажных носителей. Для значительного сокращения печатных материалов для Конференции, все документы будут размещены на этом сайте. Участники конференции могут скачать их в электронном виде и, при необходимости, распечатать. Только документы, подготовленные в ходе подготовительного заседания Комитета и Конференции (Министерская декларация и Резюме председателя) будут распечатаны и распространены из расчета 2 копии на делегацию. Страна-хозяйка предоставит необходимое техническое оборудование (розетки и беспроводной Интернет) для использования ноутбуков в главном пленарном зале. Принимая во внимание ограниченные финансовые ресурсы, страна-хозяйка предлагает участникам использовать свои ноутбуки на Конференции. !!!

The “Astana Water Action” (En / Fr / Ru) is a collection of possible actions for improving the status of water and water-related ecosystems through their more sustainable management. This initiative is meant to serve as a supporting tool with concrete suggestions for Governments for an improved implementation of their commitments in water management, assessing the current status of actions in support of sound water management and identifying priorities.

Please register your commitment to actions as soon as possible (preferably by 15 September2011) so that this can be acknowledged at the Conference and included in an informal document complementary to the Astana Water Action. If the deadline of 15 September is not feasible for your country, commitments may still be submitted up until the Conference and, in exceptional cases, during the Conference. Furthermore, relevant IGOs and NGOs are also encouraged to register their commitments to water actions.

"Астанинские предложения относительно действий по воде" отражают определенную совокупность возможных действий по улучшению состояния воды и связанных с водой экосистем за счет более устойчивого управления ими. Благодаря включенным в них конкретным предложениям они призваны служить правительствам подспорьем в их усилиях по обеспечению более эффективного выполнения своих прошлых обязательств по управлению водными ресурсами, по оценке нынешних действий в поддержку рациональной водохозяйственной практики и по установлению приоритетов.

Приглашаем Вас зарегистрировать свои действия как можно скорее (желательно до 15 сентября 2011 г.) для того, чтобы это было подтверждено на Конференции и для того, чтобы действия были включены в неофициальный документ, дополнительный к Астанинским предложениям относительно действий по воде. В случае если крайний срок 15 сентября 2011 г. неосуществим для Вашей страны, обязательства все еще могут быть представлены до и, в исключительных случаях, во время Конференции. К тому же, мы рекомендуем межгосударственным и неправительственным организациям также зарегистрировать свои обязательства по осуществлению действий по воде.
