La Conférence des Nations unies sur le développement durable qui se tiendra à Rio en 2012 doit envoyer un signal clair à la communauté internationale et formuler des propositions concrètes concernant la transition vers un nouvel ordre économique fondé sur une croissance économique de qualité qui contribue à éliminer la pauvreté et les injustices sociales tout en préservant le cadre de vie naturel pour les générations futures.

Le Comité est persuadé que l'accès garanti aux ressources, à l'alimentation et à l'énergie doit faire partie des thèmes prioritaires de l'agenda mondial du développement durable.

Il convient de définir des paramètres précis pour évaluer les progrès accomplis sur la voie d'un développement plus durable.

Avis du CESE: Contribution de la société civile organisée européenne à la conférence des Nations unies sur le développement durable à Rio (Rio + 20)

4 pages

S'appuyant sur un dialogue intense avec la société civile, le CESE a contribué à l'élaboration de la position de l'UE sur Rio+20. En février 2012, la conférence du CESE Pensons durable, soyons responsables! La société civile européenne en route vers Rio+20 a adressé une liste de messages à porter à la conférence de Rio et a appelé les dirigeants politiques à accroître leurs efforts pour que celle-ci débouche sur des résultats ambitieux.

This workshop is exactly in line with what we had declared we would be doing to bring Rio home: we keep up the momentum for further promoting sustainable development, we want European civil society to be involved and we want to contribute with concrete proposals.

Sustainable development is a long-term objective and needs continuous action, and in particular civil society involvement all over the world. Rio+20 was an important mobilising factor for civil society around the world, we need to keep up the momentum and to hold our governments accountable for what they have agreed to in Rio de Janeiro last June.

It has been one of the very positive experiences during my Presidency at the EESC to see how much we Europeans and you Brazilians agreed on key elements that were on the table of the negotiators at the Rio+20 Conference.

In February last year, Mrs Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, talking about EU-Brazil relations said that this is a relationship that is important, but she didn’t think that the EU had made it as important as it ought to be. We support the need to go deeper in our relations with Brazil. And here’s the evidence: we are again meeting today, keeping up the regular pace of our exchanges, willing to produce joint work that will be useful also to our political leaders.
So we will send the result of this Round Table to Mrs Ashton, and to the Brazilian authorities, as we always do, in order to provide a civil society contribution to her important work. And we are doing it right in time for the next EU-Brazil Summit that will take place in Brasília in two days from now.

The hearing this afternoon is focussed on the topics "inclusive green economy" and "sustainable development goals" because these were the two topics that the stakeholders stressed most when we had our Rio de-briefing session in early July. ..." (Version anglaise uniquement)

Speech : European civil society contribution to the Commission's consultation

Organisation: 
EESC

The EESC has been very actively involved in the run-up to Rio, enhancing civil society dialogue in preparation of the Conference and at the Conference.
We were committed to contributing to the EU's position and to mobilising EU civil society in order to push EU and world leaders towards an ambitious outcome.
We know now that the outcome text has not been as ambitious as we Europeans would have wished it to be. Now we have to work to make the agreement a success by advancing further on the processes that were launched and by implementing at least here in Europe the proposals that we have put forward in New York and in Rio de Janeiro.
