Financing Development - Responsibility for Sustainable Development

Auteur
KFW for RIO+20
Description

The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – also known as the Earth Summit – was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. It was a turning point in international affairs because the international community officially subscribed to the principle of sustainability. This term means that future generations must have at least the same opportunities as people today. Natural resources, therefore, must be handled with care and the environment must be protected. The summit, moreover, agreed that poor countries must develop and fight poverty. The consensus was that rich and poor nations must cooperate on sustainability.
