ORGANIZER(S): United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)
Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 17 - 19 Nov 2015 Location: Hungary (Budapest) Venue: Budapest Congress Center, Jagelló street 1-3, H-1123 Budapest
The Meeting will feature a high-level segment that will focus on two key dynamics that will shape the future of the Convention and its activities: the Convention’s opening to all United Nations Member States and its and its contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other global commitments including disaster risk reduction and adaptation to climate change.
These two dynamics will be discussed in two separate thematic sessions, both organized in the form of a moderated high-level panel discussion followed by interventions from the floor with guiding questions.
The high-level segment will foster a strategic discussion between Parties, other States — including prospective Parties from outside the ECE region — international organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academia on these dynamics, as well as the resulting implications, challenges and opportunities ahead, and the partnerships needed.
