Implementation Conference:

Stakeholder Action For Our Common Future


Issue Advisory Group Meeting / Dinner

New York, Tuesday, 29 January, 2002, 6.30 – 8.30 pm


You are invited to participate in a meeting intended to further develop focus areas and possible outcomes of the Implementation Conference: Stakeholder Action For Our Common Future (IC) being held in Johannesburg in August 2002, facilitated by Stakeholder Forum For Our Common Future (formerly UNED Forum).



An initial meeting, attended by many of you, was held at the International Conference on Freshwater in Bonn, 5 December 2001.

At the meeting, we presented the concept and process of the Implementation Conference and invited you to consider becoming members of the Issue Advisory Group (IAG) on freshwater. We are now in the process of developing a draft issue 'non-paper', based on recent international agreements and the discussions at the Stakeholder Dialogues in Bonn, and are seeking to hold a first meeting of the Issue Advisory Group.


Meeting Purpose

To present the draft issue non-paper and agree the process towards the IC.

Agree the process between now and August 2002; we will suggest a process of communication and collaboration and seek your input.


Desired Outcome

Participants agree a preparatory process on freshwater towards the IC.
