On 1 November 2011, the International Law for Sustainable Development (ILSD) Partnership led by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) released their contribution to the United Nations Conference for Sustainable Development (UNCSD, also known as Rio+20) deliberations. This input to the UNCSD compilation document was the result of a wide consultation process and discussions between the ILSD partners, which included a seminar held in Rome at IDLO in June 2011.
The aim of this note is to provide guidance to UNCSD Member States and other stakeholders, as well as responding to the invitation from the Second Preparatory Committee of the UNCSD, to provide input and written contributions to a document being prepared by the UNCSD. The above request was transmitted by the Co-Chairs of the UNCSD Bureau.
As per their mandate and discussions, the ILSD partnership focused on the role of international law in advancing sustainable development. The goal of the ILSD Partnership is to strengthen sustainable development governance at the international, regional and national levels, laying the foundation for policy implementation by facilitating access to, compliance with, and enforcement of coherent, integrated economic, social and environmental law.
