Geneva

The Special Session of the UNECE Committee on Environmental Policy (CEP-SS) took place in Geneva from 23 to 25 February 2016. Meeting documents and presentations made during the meeting are available in the table below.

!!! The meeting aims to be a paperless event. Participants are encouraged to download the documents in electronic format. All documents for the meeting are being made available on this webpage. Please bring your laptops for working at the meeting.
