From the 20 - 22 June 2012, world leaders will meet in Rio de Janeiro to establish the framework for a sustainable future at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). Following its mandate to facilitate the implementation of WSIS outcomes, UNGIS has been following and supporting the Rio+20 process to ensure that ICTs are recognised as a foundation for sustainable development and that the existing WSIS process is recognized as the platform to address issues raised by ICTs.
Read our contribution to the Rio+20 preparatory process here and join us in Room P3-6 at RioCentro, Rio de Janeiro on Sunday 17 June from 17:30 to 19 for the UNGIS side event:
