To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what steps she has taken to make available to the general public information on the work of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development. [130358]

The work of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) is communicated comprehensively through the United Nationsl own website http://www.un.org/esa/sustdev/index.html and wider communications programme. Our own UK Government Sustainable development website http://www.sustainable-deveiopment.gov.uk/ contains a link to this site. Non-governmental stakeholders are consulted by HMG officials prior to the UK's attendance at these meetings, and are usually represented on the Government delegation. CSD's work is also included in Command Paper 5898 "The United Kingdom in the United Nations" published this month http://www.fco.gov.uk/Files/kfile/Cm5898.pdf, copies of which were deposited in the HoC Library on Friday 5 September.
