Intergovernmental Regional Preparatory Meetings

Five Intergovernmental Regional Preparatory Meetings for Rio+20 are being held in 2011, hosted by the five regional UN Economic and Social Commissions (ECA, ESCWA, ESCAP, ECE, ECLAC) in their respective regions (Africa, the Arab Region, Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, Latin America and the Caribbean).

ICSU has been participating in these meetings, with a particular focus on communicating the results and key messages from the ICSU-UNESCO regional science and technology workshops. In this way ICSU is highlighting the importance of region-specific scientific knowledge, needs and concerns.
