Rio+20: Our chance to put the world on a more sustainable path: UN

Listen /

Sha Zukang

Rio+20 is the last chance to put the world on a more sustainable path, one that has inclusive green growth, social equity and the long-term health of our planet firmly at the centre.

That was the message Under Secretary-General Sha Zukang delivered Monday at a United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Brisbane, Australia.

"If ongoing preparations for Rio+20 have resulted in any insights, a basic one is that development cooperation will play a key role in expediting implementation in sustainable development."

The Rio+20 conference on sustainable development will take place in Rio de Janeiro Brazil June 4-6.
