What are the institutions we are talking about? Some of these will be mentioned in the next slide...
EXPLAIN WHAT THOSE ACRONYMS MEAN Each institution is part of the process of forming the international agreements and laws. However, the actual GOVERNANCE (implementing these agreements) happens at the country level..
Our guest speakers will be talking more about some of the main proposals to make stronger institutions and laws for sustainable development. Intergenerational Justice – what does it mean?

The good, the bad, and the ugly: institutionalinfrastructure for sustainable development Notice/disclaimer:“institutional infrastructure for sustainable development”, or “governance”, sound like scary words. They aren’t. Find out what they are, and why they are relevant to you, and why it matters that you should know about them, in this webinar.
The themes of Rio+20 Objectives Green Economy in the context of poverty eradication and sustainable development Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development (IFSD)
GovernanceSustainable Development doesn’t happen by itself. It needs : People (like you) to care about it and act upon it Governments, institutions, organisations and other bodies to regulate it, research about it, agree upon it, establish laws about it, and enforce those laws.This phenomenon of regulations and research and agreement and implementation – is called governance.
Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development (IFSD) – what is it?In Rio+20 jargon, the terms “IFSD” and “Governance” are often used together. To govern sustainable development, the institutions of governance must be able to conduct their work properly, and thus a framework of institutions working alongside eachother is crucial. Through these institutions, we create and enforce the laws and regulations which make sustainable development possible in practice. In local, national, regional and international governance, certain issues – perhaps lack of funds, or lack of commitment, or lack of information – create obstacles to the successful implementation of sustainable development. Rio+20 must succeed in strengthening the institutional framework through specific proposals which address these issues.
Why IFSD?The UN Commission for Sustainable Development (UN CSD) has amandate to address all areas of sustainable development.However, institutions and agreements exist to address each of thepillars of sustainable development at an international level. There issome overlap between their areas of work.For example: The UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change mainly address ENVIRONMENT. the ECONOMIC pillar is regulated through the ECOSOC but more importantly, through the International Financial Institutions ie the World Bank, the World Trade Organisation and the International Monetary Fund (these are all independent of the UN);
Why IFSD (cont) the SOCIAL pillar is addressed through many organisations, such as: the UNESCO, which handles educational progress, WHO which looks at health, and WFP which deals with the crucial issue of hunger. Other than the UN CSD: How many options do we have for formally governing sustainable development? Children and Youth are playing a key role in helping world decision makers to incorporate INTERGENERATIONAL JUSTICE into our governance systems. Some interesting proposals are now gaining support from decision makers and civil society! Will the current laws and institutions be strong enough to protect the quality of life for future generations?.. If not, how can we ensure that they do? Do we need to create completely new systems of governance?
