Panel discussion on "Climate Change and Development: Global Responses and Policy Challenges" - organized by DESA & NGLS - Friday 4 September

To further promote the launch of UN DESA’s World Economic and Social Survey (WESS) 2009, entitled "Promoting Development, Saving the Planet." and in the build-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Copenhagen in December 2009, NGLS and DESA are organising a panel discussion on "Climate Change and Development: Global Responses and Policy Challenges" on Friday 4 September, 3pm-6pm, Room XXVI, Palais des Nations, Geneva.

The principal objective of the meeting is to foster a better understanding of the linkage between climate change and development agendas with the aim of identifying the programmes and policies needed for low-carbon, high-growth and equitable development and make a case for a globally equitable and integrated approach that is coherent and mutually reinforcing. After the WESS 2009 presentation by Richard Kozul-Wright, Report Team Leader at DESA, the discussion will include complementary perspectives from other organisations.

Please find the provisional programme and a description of WESS 2009 and its key messages attached. More information can also be found on the DESA website.
