Between June 13 and 22, Rio de Janeiro will stage debates that will steer the building of sustainable development in the next few years. The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20 takes place after the Rio-92 Conference, an event that marked the outset of discussions on sustainability and alerted the world about the importance of building a better world for the generations to come. More than proposing themes and solutions, Rio+20’s proposal is to formulate effective action plans by means of two major themes:
- Green economy in the context of sustainable development and eradication of poverty;
- Institutional structure for a sustainable development.
The sector of planted forests for the production of pulp and paper acknowledges the importance of the Conference and suggests the inclusion of two other discussion themes: Carbon Credit Valuation for Forestry and Biotechnology. In addition, it will sponsor events targeted at taking planted forests to the center of the debates for building of a green economy.
