CFSSD-8 and Africa-RIMAn open-ended drafting group on the Africa Regional Implementation Meeting Outcome Document for CSD-20 tasked a small working group to meet this evening to report on the final day of the CFSSD-8 session on recommendations from the Rio+20 Conference for a High-level Political Forum for sustainable development. The working group, with representatives from Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Cameroon, Uganda and Gambia, will consider issues such as participation, including the level of political participation in the HLPF, the preferred duration and timing of sessions, coordination, and the HLPF’s relations with other UN bodies with responsibilities for sustainable development.

The second day of the CFSSD-8 session included parallel meetings to facilitate consideration of selected outcomes from the Rio+20 Conference and discussions on the implementation of the 2012/2013 work programme of the ECA Sub-programme on Food Security and Sustainable Development, and on the development of strategic agricultural commodity value chains in Eastern and Southern Africa. Delegates heard a series of presentations on Rio+20 outcomes, including Sustainable Development Goals, Means of Implementation and other outcomes such as the green economy, GDP+ and the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States.
