The second part will see presentations from a panel composed of three to five representatives from NGOs, the private sector and other Major Groups engaged in the Rio+20 Conference and the Financing for Development process.

This will be followed by an open dialogue around strategic questions related the Committeeĺs work on thematic cluster two (mobilization of resources and their effective use) and cluster three (institutional arrangements, policy coherence, synergies and governance issues), with the Committee experts, Member States, international organizations and non-state actors.

There will also be an open joint meeting of the ICESDF and the Open Working Group on sustainable development goals on Wednesday, from 10:00 to 13:00, where the co-chairs of the ICESDF will brief the Open Working Group on the work of the Committee and discuss how the work between the two processes complement each other. Both derive their mandate from the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and will contribute to the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda.

The Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing was established in follow-up to Rio+20 with a mandate to prepare ôa report proposing options on an effective sustainable development financing strategy to facilitate the mobilization of resources and their effective use in achieving sustainable development objectivesö. To this end, the Committee was tasked to asses financing needs, consider the effectiveness, consistency and synergies of existing instruments and frameworks, and evaluate additional initiatives.
