Conference proceedings



The Rio Earth Summit of 1992 underlined the imperative of integrating economic growth, social justice, and environmental concerns to satisfy the world without ravaging the earth. The awareness, unfortunately, has not been fully translated into action on the scale required to achieve true sustainability. Global stakeholders must make a concerted endeavour to realize the vision of a safe, just world that fulfils the needs of this and future generations.

TERI hopes to revitalize global commitment to sustainable development as a shared future goal, particularly in relation to the decade since Rio. Nobel laureates; political leaders; leading decision-makers from governments, bilaterals, and multilaterals; heads of multinational corporations; high-level functionaries from the diplomatic corps; scientists; media-persons; researchers; and representatives of non-governmental organizations from across the world will attend. A comprehensive agenda will be available shortly.

Through DSDS 2002, TERI hopes to offer knowledge and directions for the benefit of the United Nations' World Summit on Sustainable Development to be held in Johannesburg in September 2002. We also hope to recharge the political momentum and enthusiasm of all involved in the Rio+10 process.
