Your Meeting Bulletin


Your Meeting Bulletin (formerly called Sustainable Developments) is an additional reporting service from IISD that expands the services provided by the Earth Negotiations Bulletin to other meetings, such as conferences, workshops, symposia or regional meetings that would not be covered by the Bulletin. These initiatives are growing in scope and number and are providing increasingly important inputs into the policy-making process, and the outcomes of these important initiatives should be highlighted and made widely available to all interested parties.


Your Meeting Bulletin provides a timely, professional, high-quality reporting service for these meetings and disseminates the information extensively via the Internet. The daily and/or summary issues are sent out to the ENB e-mail distribution list, which reaches approximately 20,000 readers by electronic mail and through our Linkages website at
