The ENVforum 2010 Conference took a multi-sectoral approach to the topicof sustainable management of natural resources. It incorporated issues like the green economy, biodiversity and ecosystem services, and environmental governance perspectives, in order to investigate current paths of development and their sustainability. This allowed the identification of gaps in current development trends and the formulation of approaches for a sustainable future.

Twelve workshops jointly hosted by partner organisations in Asia andEurope were held. Approximately 150 experts in the areas of sustainability, development, and the environment from ASEM1 countries attended the conference, representing government, civil society, and business.

The conference aimed to incentivise countries in the two regions to intensify policy dialogue across local, national, regional, and bi-regional levels. This included a focus on environmental education in sustainable development and effective approaches and tools for participatory environmental decision making.
