The road to Rio+20

The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro on 20-22 June 2012 represents a critical milestone within efforts to address pressing economic and environmental challenges and to help advance countries’ common aspirations towards sustainable development and poverty eradication. The OECD is committed to supporting countries in reaching positive outcomes at Rio+20, and thereafter to implement emerging agreements.

The OECD contribution to Rio+20 will focus on the theme of a green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication, and include key points from the new Environmental Outlook to 2050, country- and sector-specific work on green growth, monitoring tools, and measuring aid targeting the objectives of the Rio conventions.
