Information

Rio+20 ?ISSUE CLUSTER FACILITATION?:
The NGO OPs have identified a number of key NGO networks, and asked representatives central to these networks to help set up thematic clusters for the purpose of arriving at common policy positions and lobbying strategies.

We invite you to serve on one or more of the proposed thematic clusters by contacting the designated facilitators provided in the matrix of zero draft priority areas.

The thematic facilitators, have been asked to commit to maintaining an email list for their cluster and to facilitate electronic communications as well as coordinate meetings of their cluster at the UN if so desired.

The immediate aim is to derive a common position for each thematic cluster to advocate in the Rio process with a common voice.

Please note that this is only for Zero Draft amendments.

For more information please consult the cluster matrix under the "Background papers/Special Studies" section of the NGO Major Groups page.
