Regional Implementation Forum on Sustainable Development 
with Focus on Energy

UNECE, Palais des Nations, Geneva, 15-16 December 2005 

At its eleventh session, the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) decided that its multi-year programme of work beyond 2003 would be organized on the basis of two-year implementation cycles, with each cycle focusing on selected thematic clusters of issues. 

During its second two-year cycle (2006-2007), the Commission on Sustainable Development will focus on the theme Energy for Sustainable Development and the inter-linkages with industrial development and air pollution/atmosphere and climate change. 

At its fourteenth session (CSD-14), scheduled to be held in New York, 1-12 May 2006, the Commission will review the progress achieved in the implementation in these thematic areas. UNECE decided to hold its second Regional Implementation Forum to provide substantial inputs for the review year and to contribute to CSD-14. This Forum will be held at the Palais des Nations on 15-16 December 2005.
