Rio+20 co-chairs invite inputs for compilation document

This past March the co-chairs of the UNCSD Bureau prepared a "guidance note" for inputs from Member States and "other stakeholders" into a compilation document "to serve as basis for the preparation of zero draft of the outcome document." This includes comments and recommendations from governments, civil society organizations (i.e., "Major Groups"), and other UN agencies, which will be posted on the official UN Rio+20 website.

Contributors are asked to address the following questions:

a. What are the expectations for the outcome of Rio+20, and what are the  concrete proposals in this regard, including views on a possible structure of the Outcome document?

b. What are the comments, if any, on existing proposals: e.g., a green economy roadmap, framework for action, sustainable development goals, a revitalized global partnership for sustainable development, or others?

c. What are the views on implementation and on how to close the implementation gap, which relevant actors are envisaged as being involved (Governments, specific Major Groups, UN system, IFIs, etc.);

d. What specific cooperation mechanisms, partnership arrangements or other implementation tools are envisaged and what is the relevant time frame for the proposed decisions to be reached and actions to be implemented?

These inputs are due no later than 5 pm EST November 1, 2011. More details can be found in the Co-Chairs' Guidance Note: Inputs for Compilation Document.
