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

Published:

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.
