"The Rio+20 Conference is about making and delivering commitments.
The Conference is a real success," says Sha Zukang, the Conference's Secretary-General, in an exclusive interview with UN Radio.
He said more than 500 concrete commitments have been registered at the Conference, from governments, business and industry, financial and intergovernmental institutions, the UN system, civil society and others.
He explained that the Rio+20 Secretariat, together with the UN Global Compact and the Secretary-General's Sustainable Energy for All initiative, has been working to capture these commitments, which already total in the hundreds of billions of dollars.
Mr. Sha told UN Radio’s Maha Fayek that he was very encouraged by the outcome of Rio+20.
