Sustainability and equity as priorities for "Rio + 20" conference

Sustainable development is about people

Urgent international action is needed to combat social inequalities and environmental risks.

That's the message from the Secretary-General to the Global Human Development Forum taking place in Turkey.

Ban Ki-moon is stressing coordinated global action on both fronts ahead of the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development in June this year.

The Forum in Turkey will conclude on Friday with the adoption by consensus of an "Istanbul Declaration" articulating commonly agreed goals and priorities for the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development.
