The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) Rio+20 Subregional Preparatory Meeting for the Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, and the South China Sea (AIMS) subregion will convene in Victoria, Seychelles, from 7-8 July 2011.
The meeting is expected to generate AIMS inputs in preparation for the UNCSD in June 2012. Participants are expected to discuss: creating a green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication; the need for a blue economy addressing oceans and related issues; the institutional framework for sustainable development (IFSD); and emerging issues and partnerships. The meeting outcome will be integrated into a consolidated SIDS position paper to be further considered at the SIDS inter-regional meeting in September 2011, which will be included as part of the compilation text for global negotiation.
IISD RS will be producing a summary report of the meeting, which will be available by Monday, 11 July 2011 at http://www.iisd.ca/uncsd/prepaims/
