ACP countries: leading up to Rio+20

ACP countries will play a key role in Rio+20. Such a statement was one of the conclusions of a recent council meeting of ACP state Ministers, UN Under-Secretary-General and UNEP Executive Directo, Achim Steiner.
According to Mr Steiner, with the transition to a green economy ACP countries will find easier to establish partnerships and strengthen South-South Cooperation. Furthermore, it will provide with a better framework to mobilize financial resources, foster a country-owned, people-centred policy framework, promote good governance and building human and institutional capacities while reducing social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities.“Green economy policy road maps can help countries progress to a resource efficient socially equitable green economy”, he stated.
However, Steiner stressed the importance of the coherence in the international governance structures as this latter is crucial to maximize delivery and support. His expectations on the potential of ACP countries appeared to be high as he added   hat “the ACP Council of Ministers is in many ways a very special and very forward looking architecture of policy making and governance”.
