UN Member States Begin Negotiations on High-Level Political Forum
One critical outcome of the Rio+20 Conference was the decision to establish a universal intergovernmental high-level political forum.

It is to build on the strengths, experiences, resources and inclusive participation modalities of the Commission on Sustainable Development, and subsequently replace the Commission. It is to avoid overlap with existing structures, bodies and entities.
