African Ministerial Conference on Environment

Reporting on Environment and Sustainable Development in Africa


The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) - Reporting Services Division (IISD RS) and South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, in partnership with the UN Environment Programme’s Regional Office for Africa and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) secretariat, have joined together to assist in communicating the policy outcomes of African regional meetings on environment and related sustainable development issues to the larger international community. Building on the success of the Earth Negotiations Bulletin in covering international environment and sustainable development meetings, the African Regional Coverage (ARC) Project will replicate this success at the regional level in order to make the outcome of Africa’s meetings available to the world in real-time. More Information on the Africa Regional Coverage (ARC) Project.
