“….The past webinars we have addressed many of the critical issues to be prepared to address the negotiations and discussions during the Río+20 World Conference.  This is now the time for the final drive. A shared focus on economic, environmental and social goals is a hallmark of sustainable development and represents a broad consensus on which the world can build (Sachs, 2012).

Health has regained its position in the draft document of “The Future We Want”, and there are initiatives from several sectors to move forward the agenda on health.

 

We will address in this seminar the call to all those supporting or attending the Río Conference. We will review the advances to date, the WHO/PAHO actions during the World Conference, and the key issues that have to be addressed.

We expect during this seminar to set the stage for the immediate action during the next 9 critical days of the Conference, for those attending, supporting or following it from their countries.…..”
