CISDL Releases Report on Consultation of Quebec Civil Society for the Rio+20 Conference
The objective of this consultation, held in Montreal, was twofold: to inform the participants about the Rio+20 Conference and the opportunities that it awards, and to invite participants to share opinions and experiences on the key themes and possible results of the Rio+20 Conference. The consultation specifically aimed to collect ideas and recommendations from participants on the two main themes of the Rio+20 Conference: a green economy in the context of poverty eradication and the institutional framework for sustainable development.
The consultation benefited from the participation of over 35 experts from a variety of backgrounds, including academics, civil society, the private and public sector, and representatives from CEN and UNEP. This report presents a brief summary of the main recommendations that benefited from consensus from the participants to this consultation. The report does not attribute any particular opinion to any specific participant and the conclusions involved do not necessarily represent the opinion of all participants.
