Views on recent news: The EU’s position at the Rio+20 UN Sustainable Development Summit. The UN Conference on Sustainable Development was hosted from 13 to 22 June 2012. It marked the 20th anniversary of the 1992 Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, and the 10th anniversary of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg. The Conference was intended to assess the progress made to date, identify remaining implementation gaps and address new and emerging challenges since the two previous conferences. In this interview, Nadia Lamhandaz presents the EU’s position during Rio+20 and shares her views on the outcomes of the Summit. She outlines the main results of the negotiations, in particular regarding sustainable agriculture, food security and nutrition. She emphasises that the Rio outcome document is less ambitious than what the EU expected. But it offers a number of opportunities for undertaking further substantive work at the international level.
