Transport is among the thematic cluster of issues to be considered by the 18th Session of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD-18) to be held in May 2010. The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 58/218 mandates UN Regional Commissions in collaboration with the Secretariat of CSD, regional institutions as well as United Nations organizations to organize multi-stakeholder Regional Implementation Meetings (RIMs) to provide regional input to the work of the CSD.
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in collaboration with UN organizations including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and other partners scheduled the Africa RIM for CSD-18, to be held in October, 2009 under the auspices of the Sixth Session of the Committee on Food Security and Sustainable Development (CFSSD-6). This RIM will review implementation progress achieved in the thematic cluster of issues to be considered by CSD-18 in the context of commitments, goals and targets agreed upon by member states and contained in the Agenda 21 (A21), the Program of Further Implementation of Agenda 21
(PFIA21) and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation of the Outcomes of the WSSD (JPOI).
