REC, in its strategy for 2013-2015, supports actions aimed at implementing good governance practices for sustainable development and green economy. Both thematic areas will be the subject of the Rio +20 Rio conference starting in Rio de Janeiro. Apart from the deliberations we will be able to meet you during a series of accompanying events.
REC will develop a framework program for local authorities that includes waste management services. As a first step, we plan to open a sub-regional IPLA office for Central and Eastern Europe and selected Black Sea countries. The results of these activities will be presented in November 2012 at the General Assembly. We will also start discussions on the problem of activating the funds of countries - donors of REC. These funds will serve the launch of the IPLA Secretariat and the creation of partnerships and a global network of local governments.
REC will also promote our regional programs such as the Green Package, Sustainable Development Academy, Safety and Environment Initiative, Regions for Sustainable Development, etc. In the autumn we also plan a special e-learning session to promote the experience gained at the RIO +20 conference.
