Rio+20: French Women Contact Group for Gender and Sustainable Development
Presentation of the French Women Contact group contribution for Rio+20
11.10.2011 |Sascha Gabizon
The French Women Contact Group for Gender and Sustainable Development presents its contribution for Rio+20. Equality between women and men is at the core of the definition of sustainable development.
Rio+20 is a good opportunity to redefine "sustainable development", and to reaffirm that a balance between environment, social and economic sectors can only be achieved if human rights are respected - globally.
