Dominican CSO declaration on Rio+20
CIVICUS member, Alianza ONG, from the Dominican Republic has recently shared the outcome document resulting from the meeting of 60 Domnican CSOs on their unified position towards the Rio+20 Summit. In their declaration they place great emphasis on the need for Member States to honor existing commitments put forward at previous Earth Summits. They also indicate that given the Dominican Republic?s lack of national consensus on the concept of green economy, the government must prioritize this issue in its preparations toward Rio. Finally, just as CIVICUS firmly supports multistakeholder participation in all governance processes, including Rio+20, Dominican civil society particularly echoes the position as it regards citizens? involvement for the successful achievement of sustainable development.
