Information

Equity in the Compilation Document for Rio+20
This background document was prepared by Ibon International for the Workshop on Rights for Sustainability to be held at the UN Church Center, New York on January 24, 2012. It is intended as a reference paper for civil society organizations who wish to influence the negotiating positions of members states and promote a rights-based approach to sustainable development as a way of ensuring that inter- and intra-generational equity and justice are central concerns in the reform agenda at Rio+20 and beyond.

Everyone interested in participating in the Rights for Sustainability Initiative may email Paul Quintos pquintos.ibon@gmail.com for more information.
