The Seminar on ‘Sustainable Development Assessment: Towards Measurable Goals’ will take place at ASEF in Singapore (21-22 November 2012). The seminar will gather over 50 representatives from international organisations, environmental think-tanks and business representatives from ASEM countries. It will be followed by a meeting of the Asia-Europe ENVforum steering committee on the 23 November 2012.
The principle objective of the seminar is to initiate a three-year-programme (2013-2015), which will empower countries’ leadership towards a bottom-up approach. This will help in creating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on a national and regional level. The programme will directly target policy makers, non-governmental organisations, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and other relevant organisations including the UN agencies.
