Submission to EU's consultation on Rio+20 UN Earth Summit

01 January 2013

The Royal Society has responded to the EU’s consultation on the Rio+20 UN Earth Summit, which took place in June 2012. The Summit's focus was on two intertwined themes: "a Green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication" and "the institutional framework for sustainable development". After extensive negotiations, a Rio+20 Outcome document was agreed upon, with a number of actions and commitments. The objective of the EU’s consultation is to provide input to the European Commission for the development of specific  follow-up actions and measures and for its proposals for EU positions.
