FDSD submits written evidence on Rio+20 to the Environmental Audit Committee


FDSD warned about “signs of erosion in the overall global political commitment to sustainable development” and recommended urgent action to accept the reality of planetary boundaries, address political short-termism and create institutions to ensure that the needs of future generations are built into decision-making.

This submission responded to the Environmental Audit Committee’s request to submit written evidence on preparations for Rio+20, the UN Conference on Sustainable Development due to take place in 2012, 20 years on from the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio.
