preparing for the second prepcom

Just a few things. The date of the Summit on Stakeholder Forum web site is May and is the one we took from the UN web site when it was up. It has been taken down. There is widespread discussion of the Summit moving anywhere from end of May to August. I think we should know by the end of the prepcom. There is also talk of new prepcoms in January and February

We should know also by the end of the prepcom the issues under the Green Economy. I have heard a number of topics suggested such as:
• Energy
• Agriculture
• Biodiversity
• Human settlement
• Fisheries
• Land use
• Water

Stakeholder Forum have a number of initiatives that might be useful to link up with.

On Sustainable Development Governance we have set up the Sustainable Development Governance Network. The first two papers are up online. We will have further papers coming out in the next month:

• International Environmental Court (by ICE)
• Policy Science Interface (by ICSU)
• World Environmental Court (by Prof Frank Biermann)
• Sustainable Development Council (by Felix Dodds)

And then further ones planned are:
• Re-establishing the IACSD
• Local Sustainable Development Plans (by ICLEI)
• National Sustainable Development Councils
• Reforming Climate Governance
• Sustainable Development Board
• Environmental Ombudsman
• Reporting on Sustainable Development to EcoSoc

The Network is open and if the Forum wants to join and produce a paper it would be very welcome. We are with UNEP organizing a conference on Governance on Sunday the 6th of March information to go out very soon.
