like the new TOWN study of out The German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU): [link]
WBGU-St├Ądtegutachen - here is also the new report on Participation (PDF) [link]
and the SRU-Gutachten mit wissenschaftspolitischen Impulsen. Check also the German Environmental Advisory Council - SRU
We in Germany have plenty such Council - maybe they each should review and comment the outcomes with more publicity.

Dr. Joan Clos, Executive Director of UN - Habitat is next. He tells us of the 20 years interval between the Habitat Conferences ! This provides some insights into the process and how the International Community treats some of the most critical issues....

Jeffrey Sachs, Charles Landry, .... they really brought some people here...

I even decided to not hop between the 9 workshop, but try to sit still in workshop #9 Governance, Civic Participation & Capacity

David is a senior fellow at IIED and visiting professor at the Development Planning Unit, University College London. He is since 1974 with IIED, was at the HABITAT I in 1976.
