UNGIS Contribution to the RIO+20 Preparatory Process

JointInitiativesImageFollowing on the recommendations of its 7th meeting that took place in Geneva last May, UNGIS agreed to present a joint contribution to the preparatory process of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (RIO+20). In response to the call for contributions by the RIO+20 secretariat, UNGIS has prepared a contribution highlighting the relevant aspects of ICTs and Information Society to help achieve a green economy and sustainable development.

The UNGIS Contribution to the Rio+20 preparatory process makes concrete proposals and welcomes the establishment of international sustainable development goals as tools to measure progress towards sustainable development with the aim of promoting access to ICTs and the transformational potential they encompass in achieving equitable, secure and sustainable societies. This important contribution ensures linkage between the principles of the World Summit on the Information Society and the sustainable development process.
