High- level Panel on Global Sustainability

The meeting will be led by its co-chairs, President Tarja Halonen of Finland and President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.

With 21 members, Mr. Ban launched GSP on 9 August 2009 to create a new blueprint for a sustainable future on a planet under increasing stress resulting from human activities. The Panel will release its report, which will be an input for Rio 2012, later this year.
