UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT (RIO + 20)
GENERAL NOTICE FOR AQUISITIONS AND CONTRACTS
The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio +20), to be held in June 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, has as its main objectives to (i) ensure a renewed political commitment to sustainable development, (ii) evaluate the progress made so far and (iii) also evaluate the gaps that still exist regarding the implementation of the results of the primary meetings on sustainable development that have occurred in the past twenty years – since the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Eco 92 or the Earth Charter).
Conference also intends to address the emerging challenges based on two fundamental axis: a green economy within the context of sustainable development and the eradication of poverty; and the institutional scenario for sustainable development at global and local levels.
The development progress in the poorest countries could be interrupted - or even reversed - by mid-century if sweeping measures are not taken in order to mitigate climate change to avoid greater environmental damage and diminish deep inequalities that exist within each country and between them. This projection is presented in the 2011 Human Development Report of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The Report “Sustainability and Equity: A better future for everyone” states that environmental sustainability can be efficiently reached if approached through themes surrounding disparities in health, education, income and gender, along with the need for global action on energy production and ecosystems protection.
