Accountability in Global Environmental Governance, Pardee Center

 Permanent link   All Posts
Hans Peter Schmitz participated in an experts workshop on accountability in global environmental governance jointly organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and Boston University's Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. The September 9 workshop fomulated an agenda aimed at inserting more meaningful accountability measures into global environmental governance, particulary during the run-up to the Rio+20 environmental summit of 2012. A lunch time panel discussion focused on why wide-spread agreement on a need for greater accountability (to close the ever-widening gap between commitment and compliance) has not been translated into action. Other participants included Ambassador Lumumba Di-Aping of Sudan, the country’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Chief Negotiator for the G-77 on environmental issues; Adnan Amin, Director of the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) Secretariat; Adil Najam (Director, Pardee Center); Deborah Murphy (IISD); Mark Halle (IISD); Maria Ivanova (UMASS-Boston); Tom Bigg (International Institute for Environment and Development); Ricardo Melendez-Ortiz (International Center for Trade and Sustainable Development); Miquel Munoz (Pardee Center); and Ulf Melgaard (Danish Embassy to the United Nations).
