The GC-23/GMEF programme of Special Events

Nairobi, 21-25 February 2005

The “Environment Institute” is the programme which forms the umbrella under which all Special Events during the 23rd Session of the Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum (GC-23/GMEF) are organized. The Environment Institute programme focuses on the implementation of internationally agreed goals, including those in the Millennium Declaration, and gives participants the opportunity to take part in specially targeted events and training courses related to the issues at stake during GC-23/GMEF.

The Environment Institute will be located in the central Conference area. In addition to hosting a number of one-hour Special Lunch and Evening Events organized by UNEP and partners, the programme also offers three-hour practical level training sessions in the afternoon (The Institute@UNEP-GC/GMEF). The objective of the training sessions is to focus on implementation of the Millennium Development Goals 1, 3 and 7 related to poverty alleviation, gender and environmental sustainability.On Thursday, the African Business and Sustainable Development Roundtable takes place parallel to the Environment Institute programme, while on Saturday 26 January a field trip will be organized.

The Environment Institute takes place from 21 to 25 February 2005. More information on Environment Institute events will be made available on this website in the coming week.
