The GEO engagement priorities guide a number of GEO Work Programme activities. The policy aspects of the engagement priorities are driven and supported by UN agencies and international organisations, such as UNFCCC, UNDRR, UNCCD, UN-HABITAT, UN FAO, UNDP and UNEP. These UN bodies are not only developing and shaping international policy, but in many cases they are the custodian or lead agencies for topics that are fundamental to the success of the GEO Work Programme. Understanding whom, how and when to engage these agencies and other international organisations is important to help GEO support UN Member States. It cuts across many of GEO’s activities from capacity development to resource mobilisation, as well as outreach and international policy development. Speakers will present concrete examples of collaboration from the GEO Work Programme.
