Description:The Group of 77 and China, Nairobi Chapter will hold a Ministerial Luncheon to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Group of 77 and China and to celebrate the first United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The said luncheon will offer the member countries of the Group of 77 an opportunity for the exchange of views of global environmental issues relevant to the Group and also chart a way forward for sustainable development. The fundamental objective of the Group of 77 in environmental negotiations has been to integrate development with environment so that a process of positive synergy can emerge and understandings are reached among all stakeholders. The international community has increasingly come to the realization that what is at stake is that development must be environmentally sound in order to preserve the planet for future generations. The Group of 77 has made a substantial contribution in rethinking the relationship between development and environment, which has led to the re-appraisal of many tenets of the conventional wisdom about development. It is expected that 150 Ministers/Heads of Delegations (one seat per country) and other distinguished guests will attend. The luncheon is being organized and hosted by Group of 77 & China, Nairobi Chapter under the leadership of the Royal Thai Embassy, the current Chair of Group of 77 & China, Nairobi Chapter. It will take place on Friday, 27 June 2014 from 13:00 - 14:30 hours at the lower fountain area, UN compound, Gigiri.
