"Implementation is imperative if we are to attain the future we want" - Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary General
Leading the Way to The Future We WantMember States, United Nations system and Major Groups are together leading the way to the Future We Want. The Rio+20 Conference was an action-oriented conference focusing on implementation of sustainable development. Key vehicles for implementation of sustainable development include Partnerships for Sustainable Development, Voluntary Commitments, and Green economy policies and initiatives.
Member States are leading the process on sustainable development at all levels. They have agreed to a number of commitments since the first 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment and a number of new processes have been launched at the latest UN Conference - Rio+20.
United Nations System
UN system entities, with their mandates and respective comparative advantages, play a central role in advancing the sustainable development agenda at the global, regional, sub-regional, and field levels.
Sustainable development requires the meaningful involvement and active participation of all major groups.
