ICLEI Rio+20 Briefing Sheet for Local Governments
The series of briefing sheets published by ICLEI is meant to give condensed information about a range of important topics. This briefing sheet looks at the background and purpose of Rio+20, and at what role local governments can and should play there.

The process leading up to Rio+20 is not shaped solely by national governments and UN-DESA (as main organizer), but also by the so-called nine major groups. These major groups are generally known as stakeholders within the UN system, but are in fact also actors, and this briefing sheet takes a closer look at what their formal role in the process is.

Harnessing their capacities will be an important part of the preparatory work for the conference
