General Assembly Interactive Dialogue with the High-level Panel on Global Sustainability

New York
16 March, 2011

On 9 August 2010, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the High-level Panel on Global Sustainability (GSP) to ┐reflect on and formulate a new vision for sustainable growth and prosperity, along with mechanisms for achieving it┐, in light of the growing strain placed on our planet by climate change, biodiversity loss, food insecurity and other interlinked challenges.

Co-chaired by H.E. Mrs. Tarja Halonen, President of Finland, and H.E. Mr. Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa, the Global Sustainability Panel (GSP) consists of 22 authoritative world figures who work together to produce a comprehensive blue print for a low-carbon, sustainable future. The Panel held its second meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, from 24-25 February.

Their final report will be issued at the end of 2011 and feed into relevant intergovernmental discussions such as the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio 2012).
