Regional pan-European Major Groups and Stakeholder Consultation
The fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly will take place from 11-15 March 2019, in Nairobi, Kenya, under the overarching theme “Innovative Solutions for Environmental Challenges and Sustainable Consumption and Production”. The Assembly will be preceded by a Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum, bringing together civil society organisation from around the globe. In preparation to the Assembly, a regional pan-European Major Groups and Stakeholder Consultation took place in Tallinn, Estonia, on 3-4 September 2018. This consultation allowed representatives of the nine Major Groups from the pan-European region (Western and Central Europe, South Eastern Europe, Israel or Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia) to be actively engaged in the preparatory process of the Assembly, ensuring that regional views and challenges are properly identified and addressed during the Assembly.
The CIDCE was represented by its representative, Kablan Jean-Michel ATTA. We have essentially proposed the adoption of a declaration on legal indicators as a soft law instrument and the recognition of the principle of non-regression.
