The fourth session of the Committee on Environment and Development (CED) is scheduled to be held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok from 11 to 13 November 2015. The CED is one of the eight committees that make up the subsidiary structure of the Commission. The CED meets biennially to review regional environment and development trends and emerging issues, as well as identify priority areas for action.
In view of the opportunities provided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to be finalized in New York in September 2015, the CED will deliberate on emerging and persistent issues related to the new Agenda with a view to further promoting transformation for a balanced integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development. The CED is expected to provide guidance on further development of policy options and implementation tools in pursuit of inclusive and sustainable development.
