17 December: Round Table Discussion on a New Inclusive Multilateralism
The multiple challenges in today’s world, such as the consequences of climate change, patterns of unsustainable development and consumption, and rising inequality within and among nations, require new forms of multilateralism. A forward-looking and effective multilateralism will require governments and multilateral institutions, the United Nations system in particular, to engage in an open debate, drawing on the perspectives and participation of all stakeholders and partners.

The ongoing debate on new multi-stakeholder partnerships and new forms of multilateralism is therefore of critical importance to the United Nations, which is contributing to the growing practice and discourse on the subject. The United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are pleased to invite you to a roundtable discussion on 17 December to discuss how these and other developments can help to shape a new inclusive multilateralism. The discussion will take place from 1:00-3:00pm in United Nations NLB Conference Room 4.
