This meeting was an opportunity for those working toward a more sustainable, environmentally friendly future to come together and discuss how best to contribute towards achieving tangible results with respect to the sustainable development agenda. This was also an occasion to hear the ideas and insights of actors who are playing and will play a crucial role as we approach key junctures on the path toward a future of environmentally sustainable development.
