Third Regional Implementation Meeting on Sustainable Development

28 - 29 January 2008

Palais des Nations, Geneva

(RIM-3) took place in Geneva on 28-29 January 2008. Its aim was to prepare the contribution from the UNECE region to the 16th Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD-16) which will be held from 5 – 16 May 2008 in New York.

CSD-16 will open the third two-year cycle of its multi-year work programme with a focus on the following main thematic clusters:
a) agriculture;
b) rural development;
c) land;
d) drought;
e) desertification; and
f) Africa.

CSD-16 will evaluate progress made in implementing sustainable development goals in the above areas and identify obstacles and constraints. It will also address the challenges ahead and necessary next steps to be taken. Linkages to cross-cutting issues will also be addressed, as in every cycle.

While not all issues have the same relevance for all regions, the UNECE region will provide inputs not only with regard to progress and challenges in its member countries, but also from a donor perspective, particularly for Africa.

Participation

More than 200 delegates from the UNECE member States, intergovernmental and international organizations, as well as major groups participated in the Third Regional Implementation Meeting. The List of Participants may be found here.

Discussions at the RIM-3

The sessions of the RIM-3 meeting were organised in an interactive manner. Each session started with several key note addresses and was followed by an interactive discussion from the floor. The key note addresses and the interventions received by the UNECE Secretariat are available under in-session documents at the bottom of this page.

Outcomes of the meeting

The outcome of the Third Regional Implementation Meeting in a form of the Chair’s Summary focuses on particular obstacles encountered and major breakthroughs made regarding the implementation of actions, measures and partnerships related to the priority clusters and cross-cutting issues. The summary also highlights ways to improve the effectiveness of such implementation in the UNECE region and globally.
