View full report

This report by CARE highlights the need for Rio+20 to deliver on sustainable development solutions with equity and resilience as central pillars. It includes the following recommendations for the United Nations conference: ensure that discussions fully and explicitly recognise that urgent action on climate change must be part of a global action plan for sustainable development; prioritise adaptation and resilience to climate change in green economy as essential for the poorest and most vulnerable groups; pursue developed country mitigation strategies by shifting to low carbon development pathways globally; create a set of universal sustainable development goals (SDGs) that address all three (economic, environmental, social) dimensions of sustainable development alongside the drivers of poverty and inequality; recognise that solutions to these crises must be based on principles of good governance and equity.
