National Consultations

To reimagine a common, prosperous future on a healthy planet, Stockholm+50 calls for an inclusive approach that reflects the richness and diversity of voices and perspectives of various stakeholder groups: local governments, cities, civil society, women, indigenous peoples and local communities, faith-based groups, academia, youth, industry, finance, and philanthropic foundations. All major stakeholder groups are encouraged to contribute to the preparation of the international meeting, including through a range of national consultations.

The objective of the national consultations is to stimulate an inclusive whole-of-society and whole-of-government dialogue on the main themes of Stockhom+50 ad the Leadership Dialogues as they relate to each national context. The consultations will provide in-person and virtual platforms for ideas, insights, and innovation that:

  • Build a shared global vision on how to achieve a healthy planet and prosperity for all while accelerating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and Multilateral Environment Agreements through an inclusive green recovery;
  • Offer clear recommendations for governments, civil society and private sector on priority actions that can advance national and sectoral policies that address climate change and leverage nature-based solutions;
  • Amplify the voices of the poor, youth, women, indigenous groups, local communities, and other marginalized groups; and
  • Influence national and global debates that consider the views of all stakeholders.

With financial support from the Government of Sweden and facilitation by UNDP, 50+ Stockholm+50 national consultations will be organized between February and May 2022. These consultation outcomes will inform the Stockholm+50 international meeting through national reports and a global synthesis report that captures key findings, recommendations, data, media coverage, and links to national policy frameworks such as NDCs, NAPs, NBSAPS, green recovery, and sector strategies. They are also closely linked to regional and other thematic organizations organized by UNEP and partners.

The 58 consultations will be supported in: Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Barbados, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote D’Ivoire, Cuba, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Georgia, Guatemala, Guinea, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Maldives, Mali, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Rwanda, Samoa, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Sudan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Viet Nam, and Zimbabwe
