June 13-14, 2016, 9:30am – 4:45pm
Hotel Roger Smith, New York

DSC_0605As the UN and Member States prepare for the first High-Level Political Forum and strategies for the implementation of the Agenda 2030, a responsible extraction of natural resources remains a key challenge for sustainable development in many Latin American countries. Against this backdrop, this conference is a timely opportunity for different communities of expertise and practice – inside and outside the UN – to discuss UN instruments and processes suitable for governing resource extraction.  FES New York invited a group of senior experts coming from Latin America to engage in a lively and frank discussion under Chatham House Rule with representatives from UN Missions, the UN Secretariat, civil society and academia.
