EEA at the Rio+20 conference

The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) — Rio 2012 Earth Summit or Rio+20 — aims to secure renewed political commitment to sustainable development, to see how much progress has been made towards agreed goals and look at the new and emerging challenges.

The summit will be focusing on two specific themes: poverty eradication and sustainable development in the context of a green economy and an institutional framework for sustainable development.

The EEA will participate in the summit in several ways: supporting the EU delegation and the Danish presidency; hosting EEA events; and co-organising events with other international organisations and the host country of Brazil.
