2nd Carpathian Convention Working Group Meeting on Sustainable Industry, Energy, Transport and Infrastructure

On 26-27 February 2013, a further meeting of the Carpathian Convention Working Group on Sustainable Industry, Energy, Transport and Infrastructure was held in Vienna, at the Vienna International Centre.The meeting was organised by the Interim Secretariat of the CarpathianConvention (supported by UNEP Vienna) in strong collaboration with the European Academy Bolzano (EURAC) and its Vienna Office.

It was the follow-up meeting to the first meeting of the Working Group and discussions held in Kosice/Slovakia (18-19 October 2012) with the specific objective to foster the development of the draft text Protocol on Sustainable Transport and Infrastructure to the Carpathian Convention.

The Working Group made good progress in further negotiating the draft text. The meeting benefited from the results gained during the implementation of the ACCESS2MOUNTAIN project. The next meeting of the Working Group is scheduled for June 2013 with the aim of further elaborating the draft text of the Protocol. It is envisaged to have the final draft text of the Protocol ready by the end of 2013 with a view of presenting it to the fourth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 4) to the Carpathian Convention which will be held in the Czech Republic on 24-26 September 2014.
