7/15/2013 17:08:076 January: Sustainable cities and human settlements, 9 January: Climate change, 10 January: Disaster risk reductionI am a sustainability planner with a particular interest in urban ecology. As things stand, we can expect 75-80% of the world's population to be living in urban areas by about the year 2050. So, clearly, cities and urban issues are critical to the SDGs.Of all the constraints facing human society, climate change-related issues are likely to be the most critical. I am certain that all the topics in this session are constrained most by climate change. If we can figure out how to deal with this issue, we solve many of the other problems facing our world.vasishth@ramapo.eduAshwani VasishthYesI am an urban sustainability planner with extensive experience in international development. I have worked on urban issues for the past 25 years, and have developed a basis for dealing with sustainability across the board. I believe I have strong ideas to present that would constructively inform the formation of the SDGs.vasishth@ramapo.edu

Vladimir Cuk, Acting Executive Director, International Disability AllianceYesThe International Disability Alliance (IDA) is a network of networks: comprising eight global and four regional disabled persons' organisations (DPOs), we seek to unite grassroots and community-based organisations, national and regional DPOs and global networks to ensure the realisation of the rights and participation of persons with disabilities as outlined in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

IDA is strongly committed to ensuring the inclusion of rights and participation of persons with disabilities in the post-2015 agenda and any future sustainable development goals. Persons with disabilities were not mentioned in the MDGs, despite making up almost 15% of the world's population. We are working tirelessly to ensure that in the post-2015 world, the promise of "leaving noone behind" is indeed recognised.

8/23/2013 15:34:418 January: Sustainable consumption and production (including chemicals and waste)YesYesfuller@blacksmithinstitute.org, rachael@blacksmithinstitute.orgRichard FullerYesToxic chemicals from industry and mining may affect the health of as many as 200 million people in low- and middle-income countries. Much of this impact is caused by small-scale or artisanal livelihood activities. These industries often lack technical expertise, knowledge about and resources to implement environmentally safe technology to prevent adverse impacts on human health and the environment. Without intervention and cleanup, toxic pollution poses real long-term health and environmental challenges. It can significantly impede economic and social development, as well as achievement of any new Sustainable Development Goals.

The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP) is a new international partnership offering technical expertise, guidance and resources to low- and middle-income countries to help clean up toxic sites, prevent re-contamination and guard against future pollution. Richard Fuller is the President of Blacksmith Institute, which is currently service as GAHP Secretariat. Mr. Fuller would present to the Open Working Group the scope of toxic pollution globally (which primarily impacts the poorest populations in low and middle-income countries), the global burden of disease from toxic pollution, successful strategies for mitigation, and show how the new Global Alliance on Health and Pollution can be used as a tool to promote sustainable development. Blacksmith is accredited with UNEP.

11/21/2013 8:32:108 January: Sustainable consumption and production (including chemicals and waste), 9 January: Climate changeLamia BazirYesThe High Atlas Foundation (HAF) has made a Zero Waste Commitment and is in the process of implementing a waste management system in Morocco, predominantly in rural areas. HAF is creating a biomass briquette system which will repurpose agricultural waste into briquettes, a clean burning alternative fuel source. We will use waste from our organic fruit tree agriculture initiative (HAF will be planting its 1 millionth tree this January) such as nut hulls and shells to produce briquettes, which will be used by the local community as an alternative to wood or coal fuel.
The HAF is interesting in participating in this steering committee because we can use our expertise in sustainable methods of waste consumption and production to help guide the OWS. The HAF considers this an essential topic of study and would like to contribute as much as possible to the OWS's engagement with the subject of Sustainable consumption and production.
Lamia BazirYesThe HAF will be planting its 1 millionth tree this January. The HAF works with predominantly rural farmers to transition from traditional cash crops to fruit tree agriculture, and we train farmers in organic farming techniques in order to certify the land organic. This fruit tree initiative helps prevent desertification, and planting is often accompanied by the installation of drip-irrigation systems to efficiently use local water sources. We are contributing to the creation of a Moroccan "Green Economy" by federating rural farmers under a community-run Cooperative. This Cooperative, High Atlas Agriculture and Artisanal (HA3) will sell organic produce on the domestic and international market and will return profit to the farmers, as well as reinvesting a portion of the profits into expanding the tree planting initiative and implementing additional human development projects. This Cooperative will also produce, market, and sell biomass briquettes, a clean burning fuel alternative. The HAF is interested in participating in the steering committee to share our expertise in this business model for a "Green Economy" to help prevent further Climate change, which is causing significant environmental problems for rural Moroccan farmers. One of HAF's goals is to advance an eco-friendly approach to economic development and social progress, and thus we are very interested in contributing to this vital dialogue.haf@highatlasfoundation.org
L.Bazir@aui.ma
yossef@highatlasfoundation.org
Lamia BazirYesLamia will present on behalf of the High Atlas Foundation to help frame the topic of sustainable consumption and production. The HAF is a grassroots participatory development foundation, thus all projects are community initiated and community implemented. The focus will be on sustainable waste management, and the repurposing of agricultural waste into a clean energy fuel alternative. This clean energy briquette production is part of a larger sustainable system developed by the HAF and implemented with community partners with support from governmental and non-governmental funders. This system begins with the creation of fruit tree nurseries, and the transitioning of rural farmers from cash crops to fruit tree agriculture, which generates more income and diversifies local diets. Young trees are distributed from the nursery (by agriculturalists, trained in organic techniques) and are planted in family orchards. The produce from these trees is purchased by the Cooperative High Atlas Agriculture and Artisanal, which markets and sells this produce on the domestic and international market. A portion of the profit is distributed back to the farmers, and the remainder is reinvested in the Cooperative to identify and implement community initiated human development projects and to fund the expansion of this initiative. This sustainable cycle diversifies local diets, gives local farmers access to a value-added good, and incorporates a waste management system to generate profit from the agricultural waste from the fruit trees (primarily nut hulls and shells).
Lamia's presentation would help frame this topic and would provide OWS attendees with background on the topic as well one NGO's sustainable solution to matters of consumption and production.

The HAF is a grassroots participatory development foundation, thus all projects are community initiated and community implemented.

The HAF aims to establish a "Green Economy" with an innovative business plan that incorporates economic advancement with sustainable methods of alleviating Climate change issues. As explained above, the HAF has created a sustainable system, which begins with the creation of fruit tree nurseries, and the transitioning of rural farmers from cash crops to fruit tree agriculture, which generates more income and diversifies local diets. Young trees are distributed from the nursery (by agriculturalists, trained in organic techniques) and are planted in family orchards. The produce from these trees is purchased by the Cooperative High Atlas Agriculture and Artisanal, which markets and sells this produce on the domestic and international market. A portion of the profit is distributed back to the farmers, and the remainder is reinvested in the Cooperative to identify and implement community initiated human development projects and to fund the expansion of this initiative.
This sustainable cycle also includes the production and sale of biomass briquettes, a clean burning wood and coal alternative. With the Cooperative in place, we will be able to bring this briquette project to scale, and can begin to export this coal alternative to other industrial nations that rely heavily on coal burning.
Lamia's presentation would provide OWS attendees with an understanding of the issues that have arisen from Climate change for Morocco (particularly desertification and reduction of water sources) as well as the ways in which local communities and NGO's are facing these challenges.

12/6/2013 4:43:5910 January: Disaster risk reductionDebbie HillierYesAs policy adviser at Oxfam, Debbie has been closely involved in DRR for many years and can represent Oxfam's work across the organisation - supporting community based DRR, national level policy making and influencing international policy frameworks; Oxfam is also engaged in the post-Hyogo Framework discussion.
Oxfam believes that disasters are a key blocker to development, pushing people into poverty, and their inclusion, in some way, in the future development goals is a key consideration for the SDGs.
dhillier@oxfam.org.ukDebbie HillierYesDebbie Hillier can present some of the findings of ACCRA - a multi-country programme looking at building adaptive capacity to disasters and climate change. The programme, running for 5 years in 3 countries, focuses on coproduced solutions, working for local communities, and is underpinned by a strong research element.
This practical on the ground experience will be married with knowledge and expertise on the post-2015 goals process, including insights on specific goals, targets and indicators.
