Outcomes from Bonn UN DPI NGO Conference
The United Nations Department of Public Information 64th NGO Conference from the 3-5th of September 2011 agreed a declaration which covered Rio+20 and the 10 year anniversary of voluntarism it can be downloaded from here. The Rio+20 text is the first attempt to put together some ideas on Sustainable Development Goals which were put on the table by Columbia in June.

The expert group that managed the process was made up of 15 from developing countries and ten from developed.

The Declaration was accepted unanimously by the 1500 NGOs and other stakeholders present and will be submitted to the zero draft. It will also be tabled in the UN GA by Germany and will be circulated to the UN GA debate on voluntarism ? the other theme of the conference.

If you are interested then you can also watch the plenary and round tables on video from here

We would hope that stakeholders would find this a good document to initiative discussion at the national level and within their networks.
