 “The moment has come to put away the paralysis of indecision, acknowledge the facts and face up to the common humanity that unites all peoples, … Rio+20 is a moment to turn sustainable development from aspiration and patchy implementation into a genuine path to progress and prosperity for this and the next generations to come.”

Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the
United Nations Envrnment Porgramme (UNEP)
