28 Mar 2012 - 28 Mar 2012
New York, USA

As an input to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) UNCRD-LAC Office actively participated in the elaboration of the document entitled “Development Sustainability facing 20 years of the Earth Summit: Progress, gaps and strategic guidelines for Latin America and the Caribbean". UNCRD-LAC also participated in several interagency meetings and discussions together with the other UN Agencies involved.

Discussions focused in assessing progress and gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development, address new and emerging challenges, and provide "strategic guidelines" pointing the way forward (including main messages that the respective organizations have put forth for the region). Based on the Office’s experience, UNCRD-LAC led the themes on integrated regional development management and human security and regional governance and capacity building at the sub national (regional) level for sustainable development.

The final version of the document was launched at an event chaired by the Deputy-Secretary-General of the United Nations, on 28 March 2012 in New York and served LAC countries as a basis to prepare their positions in the Summit negotiations.

Participants: 100 representatives of LAC countries and UN agencies with a regional mandate.
