“Towards Thematic Reviews for an
Integrated Follow-Up & Review of the 2030 Agenda”
7 -8 July 2016, New York City
DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan Hotel, 569 Lexington Avenue (at 51st Street)
***Reminder***
1. If you are interested in attending this event the registration link can be found here
2. If you have already registered and confirmed you participation, we would like to draw your attention to: the attached programme and some background reading material which can be accessed here or at the bottom of the invitation text.
Dear Mr. Huffines,
We would like to invite you to our High-Level Event “Towards Thematic Reviews for an Integrated Follow-Up & Review of the 2030 Agenda”, which will take place on the 7th and 8th of July 2016 in New York, a few days ahead of the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
This event will discuss how to support the follow-up and review (FU&R) of the 2030 Agenda to account for existing interlinkages and interdependencies between different SDGs goals and targets. The review of the agenda should identify its synergies and trade-offs, and highlight its crosscutting issues. Conducting a thematic review in this sense requires the cooperation of many actors in ways that allow for constructive exchange and effective integration of different sources of knowledge and expertise, including between UN Agencies and non-UN actors. This will also benefit from thinking about preparatory processes to support the thematic reviews of the agenda. This event will provide a platform for exchange between representatives from Member States, UN Agencies, ministries, science and academia, civil society and the private sector. Participants are invited to discuss how to foster cooperation between UN Agencies and non-UN actors, to increase effectiveness and integration of different sources of knowledge and expertise.
Particular attention will be given to discuss mechanisms that include local civil-society organizations, thus favouring the integration of contextual sensitivities and localized perspectives into review processes to safeguard that no one is left behind.
Drawing upon the mandates and expertise of hosting organisations and speakers, this event will take on a natural-resources and food-security framing given their relevance as topics to all the 17 SDGs directly and indirectly, and as a start for longer discussions over the coming months in support of the HLPF’s current theme for 2017 on eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.
Come to the event to

discuss the 2030 Agenda FU&R that

  1. accounts for interlinkages and interdependencies between SDGs goals and targets
  2. promotes exchange between different types of actors
  3. integrates different sources of knowledge and expertise
  4. includes civil society for context related and localized perspectives
LOGISTICAL INFORMATION:
   When?   Thursday, 7 July (10:00 am – 6:00 pm followed by a reception)

Friday, 8 July (10:00 am – 2:00 pm)
We would be pleased to welcome you on both days of our event. However, should your schedule not allow it, we would like to draw your attention to the luncheon with the negotiators where the outcomes of the event will be presented, on Friday, the 8th of July at 12:30 – 2:00 pm

” Call For Input” Deadline Nov. 30 — Opportunity to provide written inputs- for the Second UNDP/IPU Global Parliamentary Report

Dear Colleagues,
UNDP and the Inter-Parliamentary Union are jointly developing the second global parliamentary report on the topic: “Parliament’s power to hold government to account: Realities and perspectives on oversight”.
The aim of the report is to take stock of parliamentary capacity to hold governments to account and to sketch out perspectives for the future. It will analyze the conditions for effective oversight, highlight potential shortcomings and propose improvements. It will also investigate how effective parliaments are in their oversight functions, shed light on the factors that can either support or inhibit oversight, and make practical recommendations to stimulate improvement. The report is scheduled for publication in late 2016.
UNDP and the IPU are keen to ensure members of the parliamentary community, and other interested parties and stakeholders, including civil society and youth organizations, engage with and provide input to the second report in the course of its production. To this end, a call for written input has now been published. It is addressed to all parliaments, organizations and individuals with experience/interest in parliamentary oversight.
The call for written input is available in English, French and Spanish and is accessible in the following link:  www.ipu.org/gpr2
We apologize that the call has not been translated into Arabic but participants can also send their input in Arabic. The guidelines sets a maximum of 1,500 words, and the deadline for submission of input is 30 November.
We would also like to request you to assist us in circulating the call for written inputs widely to your various networks Your assistance in making sure the Call reaches the right people is most appreciated. Kindly send your input and/ or inquiries  to Ms. Suki Beavers (suki.beavers@undp.org) is leading this initiative from UNDP’s side with a copy to civil.society@unep.org

Hello Everyone,
I would like to invite all members of the GGCA to participate in an exciting opportunity for COP21. In June, the French Delegation for COP21 and a representative from the UNFCCC Secretariat met with GGCA members to express interest in stories from the field demonstrating the success and efficacy of including gender in climate change mitigation.
The Global Gender and Climate Alliance welcomes all GGCA members to submit case studies for this opportunity. These stories will be shared at high-level meetings during the COP21 Gender Day and in gender-supporting side events. They will also be featured on the GGCA website, and we will share out suggestions for publicizing them on social media leading up to and during Gender Day and the Global Landscapes Forum.
Please see the attached call for case studies for guidelines. Studies can be submitted to Vickie Markham GGCA Interim Communications Coordinator, and Hilary Landfried, Practitioners Working Group Co-Chair, hlandfried@projectgaia.com  .  We ask that stories be submitted by September 30,2015.
 
We hope that these stories will help to mainstream gender at COP21 and further to missions of many of our member organizations. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
 
Best Regards,
Hilary

“Call For Papers” – NZ Asia, Multispecies Perspectives on Humans and Elephants in Asia, November 29 – December 2, 2015 — Deadline August 31

Hi- My school is hosting the 21st biennial New Zealand Asian Studies Society conference from November 29 to December 2 this year. Confirmed keynote speakers include the Indian historian Tanika Sarkar. I am organizing a panel on human-elephant relations (see below), but I would also encourage others with Asian regional interests to consider submitting an abstract. The deadline is August 31, see: http://www.arts.canterbury.ac.nz/nzasia/

Multispecies Perspectives on Humans and Elephants in Asia 

Asian elephants are entangled in many different human enterprises through complex histories of encounter, appropriation, and adaptation. Elephants have been made to serve as weapons of war, as symbols of political power, as commodities for exchange, as objects of entertainment, as vehicles for labor, and as icons of conservation. Both free-roaming and captive elephants are profoundly affected by the human territories in which they dwell, not only inhabiting environments transformed or affected by human activity, but also enduring conditions of existence configured by human agency. But the meaning and materiality of elephant bodies, selves, and traces also have consequences for human lives and landscapes, making humans and elephants co-evolving companion species in shared social, historical, and ecological space.

Recognizing nonhuman others as more than just symbolic or utilitarian matter, this panel seeks to explore multispecies perspectives on the human-elephant nexus by considering the subjective, symbolic, and material agency of elephants as social animals that act to configure worlds shared with humans. Accordingly, this panel seeks contributions that employ a multispecies approach to the dynamics of interspecies coexistence with elephants in Asia. Papers might consider the practices and purposes of captive management, interspecies conflict over land use, the role of elephants in conservation assemblages, trade in elephant body parts, touristic experiences of elephants in zoos, sanctuaries, and wild spaces, or elephants in veterinary practice and scientific research.

Dear 10YFP Stakeholder Focal Points and alternates,  

As you may know, following a preliminary proposal submitted by the FAO and UNEP, the development of a “Sustainable Food Systems” programme under the 10YFP-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP on SCP), adopted at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, was approved by the 10YFP Board. The 10YFP is a global framework of action facilitating international cooperation to accelerate the shift towards SCP in both developed and developing countries.

The Secretariat of the 10YFP invites you to provide your feedback on the proposed 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme, as developed in the attached Concept Note during the public consultation period from 17 March 2015 to 14 April 2015.

This public consultation is an excellent opportunity for interested governments and stakeholders to assist and engage in the development of the 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme. We encourage you to provide your feedback comments, as well as to contribute to a stock-taking exercise on initiatives of relevance for the development of the Programme, particularly to facilitate synergies and partnerships.

In addition to the public consultation, governments and stakeholders can submit a preliminary expression of interest in participating in the 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme.  Roles and responsibilities are defined in the Guidance Document on the 10YFP Programmes.

The following documents are provided for your use, information and guidance:

1)        10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programmeconcept note with description of work areas, open for public consultation. EN / SP / FR

2)        The feedback form for your comments on the concept note, EN / SP / FR

3)         as well as the stock-taking exercise form.

EN / SP / FR

4)        An advisory note for preliminary expressions of interest intaking an active role in the programme. EN / SP / FR

You will also find attached a cover letter jointly signed by the FAO and UNEP who have been supporting the development of the Sustainable Food Systems Programme under the 10YFP. EN / SP / FR

All documents are available in French and Spanish and can be downloaded on the 10YFP website: 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme.  

Involvement and support of the 10YFP programme on Sustainable Food Systems is a unique opportunity to help identity and mainstream the tools, policies, and approaches needed to scale-up and transform food systems towards sustainability.

We very much look forward to your participation. In the meantime, please send any questions you may have to 10yfp@unep.org

Best regards,

The 10YFP Secretariat

UNEP’s ACCESS-TO-INFORMATIO​N POLICY

DEADLINE FOR COMMENTING ON UNEP’s ACCESS-TO-INFORMATION POLICY EXTENDED TO MARCH, 31, 2015!
The UNEP access-to-information policy, issued on 6 June 2014, is currently on a pilot phase and subject to review within one year.  During this interim period, there will be further consideration on the contents of the policy within the UNEP secretariat for possible refinement.
On November 15, 2014, the policy was uploaded on UNEP’s website for public commenting. Given that only a few comments were received by today, UNEP decided to extend the deadline for commenting to March, 31, 2015. Comments can be sent in under:
Civil Society Representatives are strongly encouraged to use this unique opportunity to contribute to shaping UNEP’s Access-to-Information Policy and through this transparency of the United Nations Environment Programme.
The UNEP access-to-information policy provides the principles and procedures governing access to information at UNEP, which have long been observed in practice but not provided in a written format before.  Its overarching principle is that the information in the custody of the UNEP secretariat should be open and accessible wherever possible, in a manner consistent with the relevant policies and practices of the United Nations Secretariat.
Through the above review process, it is intended that the UNEP access-to-information policy be improved to better articulate how the UNEP secretariat would further its efforts to make information on environmental matters accessible to a target community or the broader public with a view to making such information a catalyst for achieving environmental sustainability.

Kind Regards,
UNEP MGSB

Participation in the Statistical Commission – Mind the Deadlines in the Details

TO UN DESA NGO MAJOR GROUP & OTHER STAKEHOLDERS
We have been advised that NGOs interested in observing the upcoming 46th session of the UN Statistical Commission and participating in side events should contact Ms. Li Wang (wangl@un.org) and Ms. Sabine Warschburger (warschburger@un.org) in the DESA Statistics Division. On behalf of the NGO Organizing Partners, please let me know if you are planning to attend the Statistical Commission at jeffery.huffines@civicus.org

In accordance with rule 75 of the Rules of Procedure of the Functional Commissions of ECOSOC, NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC may attend the Commission’s public meetings as observers. Once they express the wish to do so, they will be directed to contact the NGO Branch to accredit them accordingly. Although rule 76 of the same Rules of Procedure suggests that the Commission may consult with them through a subsidiary body, such as a Committee established for that purpose, it has been the practice of the Commission and several other intergovernmental bodies to hear statements directly from NGO representatives during plenary meetings. As only members of the Commission have the right to vote, NGO representatives participating as observers cannot vote on any issue before the Commission.
The rules of procedure also provide that NGOs on the roster, comprising those that do not qualify for consultative status or that have such status with a UN specialized agency, may also attend the Commission when matters in their area of competence are being discussed, and can be heard by the Commission on the recommendation of the Secretary-General and at the request of the Commission. 
In the established practice of the Commission, however, NGOs without status are first required to provide verifiable information establishing the relevance of their activities to the work of the Commission. If the information is compelling, their request to attend will be brought to the attention of the Bureau to make a decision, and if the Bureau decides to admit them, they will be granted observer status during the first meeting of the Commission. Should they fail to provide such information or make an unconvincing case in that regard, they will be notified that they will not be able to attend the Commission, but may follow the proceedings on webcast if they wished.
