This report highlights how sustainable development solutions coming out of the Rio+20 Summit must fully address equity and resilience, gender equality, food security and climate change. As part of the recommendations, the report calls for developed countries to provide finance, technology and capacity building to help developing countries invest in adaptation and disaster risk reduction and transition their development to low-carbon and climate-resilient pathways.
The overall report highlights that the world’s poorest people are increasingly bearing the consequences of unsustainable development; and explains that to truly deliver upon sustainable development, any new development path must focus on ensuring equity and building resilience within the global economy, within countries and within local communities.
