Post-MDGs/SDGs, one of the major issues of Rio+20, is important to design
the further actions of civil society.
Japanese CSOs are organizing an event to share the experiences of
Japanese civil society, and discuss the way of post-MDGs/SDGs.
Having experienced incredible natural disaster last year,
Japan is still determined to move forward to create sustainable communities throughout Japan.

If you are interested to discuss Post-MDGs/SDGs issues and related
case studies in Japan and Asian regions, you are welcome to join.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
