Delegations are meeting at the UN this week for a third, and final round of informal-informal negotiations, prior to the Rio+20 summit taking place next month. To inform the negotiations PCCA has issued revised recommended text and suggestions for the draft outcome document.
Following on from the second round of Rio+20 informal-informal negotiations that came to a close on 4 May with very little progress, it was decided to introduce an extra, third round of negotiations, taking place 29 May - 2 June at the UN in New York.
To inform this new round of negotiations, a new draft of the outcome document was prepared by the co-chairs. In response to this latest draft, the Population and Climate Change Alliance (PCCA) has produced a revised document setting out recommended text and suggestions to encourage the necessary focus on reproductive health and rights, population dynamics and other related issues in the Rio+20 outcome document.
This document is being shared with delegates by staff members of Sex & Samfund and IPPF that are representing the PCCA at the informal negotiations, and we are encouraging other advocates of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) to circulate the document widely, sharing it with their national delegations and international partners.
If you would like a copy of the latest version of PCCA's recommended text and suggestions for the Rio+20 outcome document, please contact Sarah Fisher, PSN Research and Communications Officer.
Further revisions to our recommendations may be issued in the near future, as well as updates and analysis from the, third round of negotiations; details of this will be made available on this website.

Now that the 3rd round of informal Rio+20 negotiations have closed, PCCA has issues a new briefing for SRHR advocates.Below you can download the PCCA's leaflet Why talk about population dynamics and reproductive rights at Rio+20?
