The aim of this first intersessional meeting is to discuss the role of UNCSD in securing renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development and address new and emerging challenges. The meeting will also address the role of UNCSD with regard to the following themes: green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication; and institutional framework for sustainable development.
