Media Room: Rio+20
Welcome to the WWF Media Center. Our team is on the ground and we’re here to help you.
It's Happening, but Not in Rio
WWF International Director General Jim Leape, OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR, The New York Times.
What WWF wants out of Rio+20
These goals must be an evolution of the Millennium Development Goals and Rio+20 should name thematic areas such as food, water, energy and oceans goals and set up the process to create them, fund them and measure them.
To value natural wealth
World leaders agree to create indicators to measure the quality of the environment, nature, and biodiversity and ecosystems alongside their existing economic (GDP) and social (IHDI) indicators.
World leaders should agree to transparent annual reporting and review on subsidy reforms leading to the elimination of by 2020 of all environmentally harmful subsidies, in particular fossil fuel subsidies.
World leaders should agree to better ocean governance, including addressing the conservation and sustainable use of the high seas, outside of national boundaries.
A stronger UN Environment Programme
World leaders should agree to strengthen UNEP with the funding and authority to properly protect the world’s environment.
