ICSU-UNESCO Regional Science and Technology Workshop for the Arab States

12-14 October 2011, Cairo, Egypt

This workshop gave natural scientists, social scientists and engineers from the Arab States region the opportunity to prepare joint positions and concerted input into the Rio+20 preparatory process, and discuss their views with high level policy-makers.

The results of the workshop were presented at the Rio+20 Intergovernmental Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Arab Region, which took place 16-17 October 2011 in Cairo, Egypt.

The workshop addressed the main themes of Rio+20:

  • green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication;
  • the institutional framework for sustainable development;
  • new and emerging challenges.

The workshop was organised by the UNESCO Cairo Office and ICSU,  in cooperation with the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and other regional stakeholders.

This is one of five Rio+20 regional science and technology workshops being organised by ICSU and UNESCO.
