Women and Sustainability: Rio+20 Information and Resources

Women Deliver is collaborating with Worldwatch Institute’s Nourishing the Planet project to highlight the important role of women, youth, and sexual and reproductive health and rights in sustainable development at this week’s Rio+20 conference, June 20-22. 

Today marked the official start of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, also known as the Rio+20 Summit, during which global leaders will discuss how to reduce poverty while preserving the environment. Discussions will also focus on a future sustainable development framework, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which could eventually replace the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

Women Deliver and Worldwatch are following the action in Rio – please visit us for interviews, press statements, and other resources on discussions and activities at the Rio+20 Summit.
