Rio+20: cities and regions role to be the future of sustainable development

According to a joint statement by the Committee of the Region's delegation to Rio+20 - President Bresso, Illmar Reepalu, and Michel Lebrun, at the occasion of the ENVE meeting, “it is undeniable that the Rio Conference failed to live up to expectations and set out the necessary roadmap needed to ensure the protection of our planet”. However, they  pointed out that this opportunity, which was missed by world leaders, is “an opportunity gained for world’s cities and regions”.
“We welcome that at the very least sustainable development and the green economy has been placed at the top of the political agenda, and local and regional authorities formally recognised as being a major contributor to creating a sustainable future […] Rio is not the end of our work, but only the beginning.”
They have called upon the European Institutions to show their political will, provide support and start to engage them even more within decision-making on sustainable development. They have also set a Five Point Action Plan on Sustainable Development that will form the basis of their work in the short-term term.
