ICLEI's submission to the Rio+20 zero draft
? Bend the trends: Rio+20 needs to be the turning point where current global trends such as population growth, urbanization, global warming and biodiversity loss are managed. By looking at the long-term trends we can see the full effects of current behavioral practices which can help us identify problems, needs, and opportunities. If we want a sustainable world in 2050, what do we need to do now in order to transform the trends accordingly?
? Green Urban Economy: With the world?s 100 largest cities contributing over 30% to global GDP, and urbanization projections indicating that cities are going to continue to grow in importance over the coming decades green urban economies are an indispensable part of a green global economy.
? Local government stakeholders: For sustainable development governance at the global level, all relevant stakeholders ? including local governments ? must play their part in policy-shaping and implementation.
