Sustainable development plea from NGOs

64th Annual UN Department of Public Information/NGO Conference

Over 2000 civil society representatives have adopted a declaration calling on governments to step up their efforts in the implementation of policies which promote sustainable development.

The declaration, which was adopted at a United Nations conference in Bonn, Germany, also called for faster adoption of green technologies to reduce the impact of climate change.

It calls on heads of state and government to show their commitment to attending next year's conference on sustainable development to be held in Rio de Janeiro.

Mr Kiyo Akasaka is the UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information.

Patrick Maigua asked him what came out of the conference.
