Description

Welcome to the official Facebook page of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20. We are dedicated to promoting the themes and objective of the Conference, which took place 20-22 June 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Conference marked the 20th anniversary of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), in Rio de Janeiro, and the 10th anniversary of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg. The Conference resulted in a focused political document " The Future We Want" agreed by all 193 countries. More than 100 Governments were represented at the Head of State level.

The objective of the Conference was - securing renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assessing progress and implementation gaps in summit outcomes on sustainable development and addressing new and emerging challenges.
