Abstract:
“The Future We Want”, the outcome document of the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, reaffirmed the significance of regional frameworks that complement and facilitate effective translation of sustainable development policies into concrete action. This joint publication of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC), and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNESCWA) focuses on the key role the regional commissions play in addressing these challenges and supporting the work to advance sustainable development.
