ICLEI Publishes Local Sustainability Study
Within the context of the current debate on how best to set up an international governance framework in terms of sustainable development (one of the key aspects of the Rio+20 Conference), ICLEI?s study focuses mainly on placing local sustainability initiatives within a broader national and international context. The study identifies opportunities and looks at barriers to enhancing local sustainable action.

The evolution of the notion of Local Agenda 21 - the UN mandate for implementing sustainable development at the local level, of which ICLEI has been a key driver ? is also included. Rio+20 takes place in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) from 20 ? 22 June 2012. Local Sustainability 2012 forms part of ICLEI?s contribution to the preparatory process of the UN Conference as Local Authority Major Group co-organising partner, and is produced in association with the Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation and UN Habitat.
