Rio+20, Strong statement from scientists and signs of pressure

My colleague Jonas Alvin is already up in the air and later today I start my journey towards Rio+20. After working on a solution to get official accreditation for a long time, it was settled earlier this week. Since I’m going to participate in the official Swedish delegation, that means that I get a very good access to the Summit. So you can expect reports ”from the inside” as well as from the ever so much important surroundings. Pressure has been building up during the last weeks and the collective mood has been getting more positive. One of the recent strong statements came from the global scientific community. More than 100 science academies around the world have called on world leaders to take action on population and consumption at the Rio+20 summit. The alternative, from a scientific standpoint, is very severe consequences for human societies as well as for ecosystems all around the globe.

Today, there was some worrying signs from the preparations regarding the consensus view on green economy as an overarching concept. The G77 countries want to include writings on transfer of economic funds from developed nations in order to secure their sustainable growth and also transfer of technology. The meeting got stuck on this and the G77 group apparently left the meeting. This is not what the Rio meeting need in order to reach action of global sustainable development. On the other hand, it’s better to play it hard in the beginning when there still is time to sort these things out.
