Summary :

Twenty years after the first Rio conference, great inequities remain. Social

and economic inequities are especially hard on women and children as they

form the majority of the world’s poor.

We agree to prioritize measures to assure equity, equality, social and

environmental justice as they are cornerstones for achieving sustainable

development globally.
