Burgess COMMENTARY

Peter Burgess
Topic Lessons from the Proposal for a ‘Sustainable Development Council for the UN General Assembly’ (from Rio+20) for the Future of the High-level Political Forum

Description

The value of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) being virtual enables the participation of Member State representatives and stakeholders who normally cannot attend the HLPF.

This side event will relook at the ideas that were being suggested by the Member States and stakeholders in the preparation for Rio+20 in relation to the issue of what body should be created to replace the Commission on Sustainable Development.

In particular, the side event will look at the proposal for a Council on Sustainable Development within the UN General Assembly. Are there any ideas that might help Member States in their present review of the work of ECOSOC and the UNGA second committee?

The HLPF has just completed in 2019 its first four-year review and 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the creation of the United Nations. This offers a chance for open discussion on the best way for addressing sustainable development in the follow up to RiO+20 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This side event will look back at the ideas that were being suggested in 2012 and see if they offer any insights for the way forward.

Objective: Reflection on the idea that some Member States and stakeholders supported in 2012 for a UNGA Council on Sustainable Development.

Outcome: Ideas for member states to consider in their ongoing reform process.

Speakers:
  • • Jan-Gustav Strandenaes, Senior Advisor, Stakeholder Forum (confirmed)
  • • Mohamed Khalil, Egypt: Sustainable Development and Climate Change Senior Expert, and Former G77 & China lead coordinator and negotiator for Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development (confirmed)
  • • Marianne Beisheim, Senior Associate, German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) (confirmed)
  • Moderator: Felix Dodds, Adjunct Professor, the University of North Carolina (confirmed)
Time: Jul 13, 2020 10:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
