  • Explore the potential of a climate justice approach to inform more inclusive and equitable policy options in the context of RIO+20 and the post 2015 MDG framework.
  • Launch a policy brief and validation of key recommendations on how to integrate food and nutrition security, health and gender equality in climate-resilient and sustainable development and poverty eradication.
  • Establish an informal high-level group to Identify to advance the issues of health, food and nutrition security and gender equality, including through concrete partnerships and initiatives with a view to RIO+20 and the post-2015 MDG framework.
