15:10 - 16:30
Room 210, Shaw Centre
Through a panel of civil society experts it is intended to discuss on important issues that are being demanded by local people and international organizations, which are part of the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.In this sense, various initiatives are being carried out to deepen environmental issues and climate change within governments.
Therefore, this panel intends to analyze and answer questions about how open government can contribute to discussions on climate change, environmental commitments and the promotion of the Esczu Agreement of Latin America and the Caribbean. This Agreement is very important for the region, because it develops Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, an agreement that was approved in March 2018 in Costa Rica, which is binding and contains specific rules on rights of access to information, participation, environmental justice and environmental defenders.In this way, we propose a discussion on how to incorporate these commitments in the action plans, in the institutions of open government and in the civil society promotion actions.
