Register to the Civil Society Forum ahead of UNECE RFSD 2021

The 2021 Regional Forum on Sustainable Development will be held under the theme “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and action and delivery on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the UNECE Region“. Focusing on practical peer learning, the Regional Forum creates a space to share policy solutions, best practices and challenges in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

Civil society representatives are welcome to attend the civil society pre-meeting of the Forum which is organized by UNECE-RCEM, a civil society platform aimed to enable stronger cross constituency coordination and ensure that voices of all sub-regions of UN ECE are heard in intergovernmental processes in regional and global level.
