The Asia-Pacific Research Network (APRN), Reality of Aid Asia-Pacific (ROA-AP), and Ibon International are pleased to announce the dates for the Conference Workshop on Rio+20. At this Conference Workshop, to held 17 August 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand, we plan to achieve the following:

* Increase the awareness and understanding of CSOs and peoples? movements in the South of the policy agenda in the UN Conference on Sustainable Development scheduled for May 2012 (also known as Rio+20), particularly the social and development implications of the Rio themes of 'green economy? and ?institutional framework for sustainable development?.

* Bring different CSOs and peoples? movements in the South into a common discussion to exchange ideas and experiences and develop a common advocacy agenda for Rio+20 and beyond.

Participants have the option of attending the Asia Pacific Conference on Development Models by the same organizers on August 15-16.
